Halloween Safety Tips
- Make sure the child’s costume is made of a flame retardant material
- Give your child a cell phone to use in the event of an emergency.
- Know what other activities your child may be attending, such as a school or neighborhood party. Know who the chaperones are.
- Set a definite, agreed-upon time for your child to return home and stick to it.
- To improve visibility, add some reflective tape to your child’s costume and candy bag.
- Make sure the candy container your child is carrying is not too large to handle safely.
- Make sure your child stays with an organized group that is supervised at all times by a responsible adult.
- Have your child carry a good flashlight and make sure it is used.
- Encourage your child not to run across yards where he or she might trip over an obstacle. Instead, they should use driveways and sidewalks.
- Trick or Treat only in familiar neighborhoods at well-lit houses.
- Knives, swords or other costume props should be made of a flexible material that do not pose a hazard should the child trip and fall.
- If your child is wearing a face mask, make sure it fits securely and does not block vision.
- If you follow your child in a car, drive slowly and keep your headlights and flashers on at all times.
- Inspect all candy and other treats before your child eats it.
- Allow your child to have only candy products that are commercially wrapped.
- Parents of younger children should dispose of any candy that could possibly represent a choking hazard.
- If you allow your child to have fruit, such as apples, cut it open and inspect it before allowing your child to eat it.
- Homeowners should prepare their homes for “Trick or Treat”-ers by turning on all outside floodlights and removing front yard obstacles.
- Pets should be put in the house and out of the yard.
- Finally, for adults: If you are planning to attend a Halloween party, make sure you don’t drink and drive. If you do consume alcohol at the party, use a designated driver for the trip home.
