Lets make Halloween a safe evening for all. From dressing up in costumes to collecting buckets of candy, using these safety tips will help in having a fun filled Halloween.
Parents of Trick-or-Treaters
- Adults must supervise children under 12 years old.
- Walk from house to house; do not run.
- Do not cross yards where unseen objects or uneven terrain can be present.
- Only trick-or-treat at houses that are lit. Residents who do not wish to be bothered by trick-or-treaters often leave their lights off as a sign; respect their preference by not going to houses that have their lights turned off.
- If driving, ensure children exit on the curbside away from traffic.
McGruff's Halloween Safety Tips
- Give your costume a safety check before you go out.
- Ensure costumes are not a tripping hazard; falls are the leading cause of injuries on Halloween.
- Wear light-colored costumes or reflective tape so you can easily be seen.
- Carry a flashlight or lantern when out after dark.
- Try using face makeup instead of a mask, which may restrict vision.
- Use the buddy system by trick-or-treating with friends.
- Tell your parents your route and what time you will be home if going without them.
- Look both ways before crossing the street.
- Walk on sidewalks, not in the street.
- Have your parents check your treats.
