Tips for Keeping Halloween Safe

When walking in neighborhoods:

  • Go to well-lit houses and remain on porches rather than entering houses.
  • Wear clothing that is bright, reflective and flame retardant.
  • Consider using face paint instead of a mask; as masks can obstruct a child’s vision.
  • Use flashlights, stay on sidewalks and avoid crossing yards.

 For Caregivers and adults:

  • Inspect all candy for safety before children eat it.
  • Drive Slowly.
  • Watch for children in the street and on medians.
  • Have children get out of cars on the curb side, not the traffic side.

Follow these tips for a fun and safe Halloween!
