Review these safety tips with the children in your family before the big day to ensure your little monsters get home safe.

Costume Safety

  • Wear flame-retardant costumes
  • Hem your costumes so you don’t trip and fall
  • Choose make-up over masks (masks narrow the field of vision)
  • Apply reflective tape to your costume

Trick-or-Treating

  • Plan your route ahead  of time
  • Trick or treat in familiar neighborhoods
  • Carry a flashlight with fresh batteries after dark
  • Always trick-or-treat in groups, accompanied by an adult
  • Stay on the sidewalks and out of the streets
  • Cross only at intersections and designated crosswalks
  • Watch for open flames in a jack-o-lantern – review the “stop, drop, and roll” procedure in case your costume catches on fire
  • Be aware of your surroundings
  • Only visit well-lit houses. Don’t stop at dark houses
  • Do not enter any houses
  • Never accept rides from strangers
  • Do not eat any candy until it is inspected by an adult
  • Avoid candy that has loose wrappings, is unwrapped, has puncture holes, or is homemade
