Prepare for a fun and safe Halloween

Prepare for a fun and safe Halloween 

Here are some easy tips for you and your family for the trick-or-treat festivities.

  • Check your local newspaper, municipality’s website, or social media feed to get updates on times for trick-or-treating (many locations offer indoor options).
  • Make sure you have several working flashlights and so that everyone can see and be seen, glow sticks and other self illuminated products are widely available.
  • Only visit houses with porch lights that are turned on!
  • Be vigilant while crossing streets, look both ways before you cross and try to cross only at corners.
  • Stay in groups and keep an eye out for each other while trick-or-treating.
  • Consider costumes that are bright and reflective.
  • Your costumes accessories should be made from soft pliable materials.
  • Do not eat any candy until you return home to your parents.
  • All parents should inspect and review all candy collected before allowing children to consume.  (feel free to collect a candy inspection tax).
  • Discard any candy that show signs of tampering and throw away any candy that is not sealed or in the original packaging.
  • After eating candy don’t forget to brush your teeth (consider a new fun Halloween themed toothbrush).

If you are driving this Halloween season, DRIVE SLOWLY! Children will be out and about – so keep a sharp eye for everyone on the street.

It’s supposed to be a wet Halloween this year, take necessary precautions to stay safe and dry.
