Safety Tips for a Happy Halloween

Listen up ghouls and goblins – it’s easy to get swept into the spooky spectacle of Halloween. The clever costumes, the thrill of collecting tasty treats and attending parties can sometimes make us forget about safety basics. Here are a few refreshers to keep the festivities fun.

  • Map out your neighborhood route ahead of time with trick-or-treaters.
  • Stick to sidewalks whenever possible.
  • Bring a flashlight to guide your way and be seen.
  • Look both ways before crossing the street and watch for drivers.
  • Visit houses with porch lights on and skip houses that are dark.
  • Accept treats from strangers outside only, and don’t accept an invite to enter an unknown house.
  • Face paint allows for better visibility than masks, especially in the dark.
  • Keep capes, gowns, tails, wigs, hats and sleeves away from open flames.
  • Use glow sticks or battery-operated candles in jack-o-lanterns and luminaries.
