Halloween Safety

children-trick-or-treating-300x199Before you and your little ones head out to trick-or-treat, please keep the following in mind to ensure you enjoy a safe (and hopefully mild) Halloween.

  • Choose costumes, wigs and accessories made from fire-retardant material.
  • Remind children to never approach a car to accept a treat.
  • Have children look left, right, then left again before crossing the street.
  • Remember, children love to run from house to house. To prevent injury, avoid costumes that are long, baggy or loose, as they are tripping hazards.
  • Select brightly colored costumes so that children are visible to motorists. Add reflective tape to costumes and treat bags. Children can also carry flashlights or carry glow sticks.
  • Buy makeup that is labeled “FDA Approved” or “Non-Toxic” to avoid adverse allergic reactions.
  • Do not allow children under age 12 to trick-or-treat alone.
  • If older children are venturing out with friends, help them plan out a safe route and establish cellphone communication procedures and a curfew. Remind them to put electronic devices away and to not text-and-walk.
