Halloween Safety

Halloween is one of the most enjoyable days of the year for children, but parents should be aware of the potential risks that can affect children who are not supervised properly. Trick-or-treaters should always have adult supervision, even if they are traveling with a group of friends, to ensure that the only scary experiences children have are those associated with the spirit of Halloween.
  • Be sure your parents know where you are going.
  • Go with a group or 3 or more people.
  • If you feel unsafe, take along an adult.
  • Do NOT ride a bicycle. Your costume could get hung up in it.
  • Carry a Flash Light.
  • Walk on a sidewalk.
  • If a sidewalk is not available, walk on the left side of the road facing traffic.
  • Cross busy streets at an intersection or cross walk.
  • Be sure to look both ways (2 times) before crossing the street.
  • Walk, don’t run.
  • Take off your mask while walking from house to house.
  • It is a good idea to wear clothing with reflective tape.
  • If you wear a mask, be sure you can see out of it clearly.
  • Be very cautious of STRANGERS.
  • Only stop by houses that have their front porch light on.
  • Accept treats only in the doorway. NEVER go into the house.
  • Let your parents check your treats before you eat them.
  • NEVER eat unwrapped candy, opened candy or fruit given to you on Halloween.
