Halloween Safety Tips
Here is a cool acronym on how to have a fun and Safe Halloween.
Swords, knives, and other costume accessories should be short, soft, and flexible
Avoid trick or treating alone. Walk in groups or with an adult
Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags for drivers to see you
Examine all treats for choking hazards and for any food allergies
Hold a flashlight while trick or treating so you can see and others can see you too
Always test make-up in a small area first before applying it. Remove it all before bedtime to prevent any skin irritation
Look both ways before crossing any streets. Always use crosswalks if possible
Lower your risk for serious eye injury by not wearing costume related contact lenses
Only walk on sidewalks, or on the far edge of the road facing the traffic
Wear well-fitting, masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid having blocked vision or tripping and falling
Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid homemade treats made by strangers, unless you know them
Enter homes only if you’re with an adult. Visit the houses that are well-lit. Never accept rides from strangers
Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flame-resistant costumes.
