halloween safety tips

To ensure you and your child’s safety, please follow these safety tips this Halloween:

  • Accompany young children while they trick or treat.
  • Have a plan in case you get separated, for example, point out a house on each new block that you should meet at.
  • Plan and review safe travel routes.
  • Agree on a specific time your older children should return home.
  • Teach children to never enter a stranger’s home or car.
  • Advise children to travel only in familiar, well-lit areas, and to stick together with their friends.
  • Make sure your children do not eat any treats until they return home.
  • Be careful with some masks that can obstruct vision.
  • Carry a flashlight, some streets do not have street lamps. Glow sticks and necklaces are great too.
  • Put electronic devices down, keep heads up and walk, don’t run, when crossing the street.
