Halloween Safety Tips for Kids and Parents

It is important to review Halloween safety tips for keeping your little ones safe this Halloween:

  • Never allow children to go trick-or-treating alone
  • Teach children that they should never eat candy or treats until after mom or dad has checked them
  • Throw away candy or treats that are unwrapped or if they appeared to be tampered with in any way
  • Trick-or-treating in groups is safer than trick-or-treating alone
  • Do not approach homes unless the front lights are on and you can clearly see the front porch or steps
  • Beware of signs that warn of dogs or other hazards
  • Always walk on the sidewalk or as close to the edge of the road as possible
  • Add reflective tape to the hems of costumes to help motorists see children, especially for dark costumes
  • Flashlights and glow sticks are great for increasing visibility while trick-or-treating
  • Avoid masks that impair a child’s ability to see clearly
  • Trick-or-treat in areas that you know
  • Choose a safe Halloween event instead of trick-or-treating
