Halloween Safety Tips – for your Home and the Trick or Treaters

4.1.1
It’s almost time for  Halloween. The kids will soon have fun wearing their costumes and trick or treating in their neighborhoods. Here are tips to make this holiday a safe one:

Home Safety

  • Clear your walkway of any debris and wet leaves to avoid tripping or slipping hazards.
  • Keep pets inside, away from doors or windows so they won’t scare trick-or-treaters.
  • Don’t hand out candy that could be a possible choking hazard for young children.
  • Have your porch/entrance well lit if you are handing out candy. Keep the lights off if you do not want visitors.
  • Young children should not carve pumpkins.

Trick-or-Treating

  • A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children.
  • Older unsupervised children should go out with a group, follow an acceptable/safe route, and return home at a specific time.
  • Only visit homes with a porch light on and never enter a stranger’s home or car for a treat.
  • Put electronic devices down and keep heads up.
  • Stay on the sidewalks, cross only at corners, and don’t run across the street.
  • Make sure to carry flashlights, especially if staying out after dark.
  • Travel only in familiar, well-lit areas and avoid trick-or-treating alone.
  • Don’t eat any treats until returning home so you can carefully inspect them.

Costumes

  • All costumes, wigs and accessories should be made of fire-resistant materials.
  • Accessories like swords or knives should be made out of cardboard or a flexible material.
  • Pick brightly colored costumes and fasten reflective objects to clothing and bags so they are visible to motorists.
  • Avoid oversized or high-heeled shoes that can cause a child to trip.
  • Make sure masks or other head accessories don’t impede vision. (It is advisable to use make up or face paint instead of a mask.)
  • Avoid tripping hazards, make sure costume is not too long and shoes are the proper size.
  • Remove all makeup before going to bed to prevent skin and eye irritation.
  • Attach your child’s name and contact information inside their costume.
