Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween Safety Tips - Be Careful If You Are Out With Your Kids or Grands Tonight
  • Make sure costumes are not too long and are made of flame-resistant materials.
  • Face paint or makeup is preferable to masks, but if they are wearing a mask, enlarge the eye holes.
  • Make sure your child carries a flashlight and consider adding reflective tape to costumes for better visibility.
  • Don't allow children under the age of 12 to trick-or-treat without adult supervision.
  • If children over 12 are going out alone, make sure you know where they are going, what route they will take and have them check in regularly.
  • Instruct your children to only visit houses that are well-lit and to never enter a house.
  • Stay on the sidewalk and don't cut across lawns, which may have hidden tripping dangers.
  • Remind your children not to eat their treats until you have had a chance to check them over at home.
