Halloween Safety Tips

Nicolle Bellmore Pierse - Wednesday, October 31, 2018

Make trick or treating fun and safe with these easy steps:

Face Facts:

    • Masks can obstruct your child's view, instead apply nontoxic face paint.
    • Make sure over-sized hats, helmets, or headpieces won't interfere with their vision.

Costume Cautions:
    • Choose bright colors that make your child more visible in the dark.
    • Any store bought costumes and accessories (masks, beards, wigs) must be labeled "flame resistant."
    • Avoid over-sized clothing. It makes it hard to walk and can come in contact with open flames from a jack-o-lantern.
    • Your child should wear shoes that fit to avoid tripping.

While Trick or Treating:
    • Make your child easy to see by adding reflective tape or stickers to their costume.
    • See if neighbors will be home while it's still light out, and visit houses then if they're ready for trick-or-treaters.
    • Tell your child to go only to homes with outside lights on.
    • Remind your child of everyday safety tips like looking left, right, and left again before crossing the street, continuing to look as he/she crosses, and waiting for you at street corners before proceeding.
    • Kid should stay on sidewalks at all times. Cutting through people's yards can lead to accidents when things like clotheslines and other hazards are hard to spot.


Before Eating Treats:
    • Have your child wait until you've inspected his/her treats before they eat them.
    • Discard anything slightly or not completely wrapped


Have fun and be safe
