Stay Safe This Halloween

Posted on October 21, 2020 at 2:33 PM by Krislyn Powell

Children love Halloween and all of the excitement that goes along with it - collecting candy, dressing up in costumes, and looking at Halloween decorations. As excited as the children can be, often this time of year can bring uncertainty to parents. General pedestrian, road and health safety can be a concern to any parent. To help with these concerns, here is a list of safety tips.

Fasten safety reflectors to your child’s costume or give them glow sticks for light during the evening. 
Be sure to purchase fire resistant costumes and wigs. 
Make sure masks, costumes and shoes fit well to prevent tripping or blocking their vision. 
Walk on sidewalks whenever possible or on the far edge of the road facing traffic.
Avoid eating homemade treats and inspect candy before consuming. 
If your kids are old enough to trick or treat without you, develop a route that you feel comfortable with, establish a curfew and make sure they know to stay with family members or friends.
