To most youngsters, there is nothing better than getting free candy!  But because safety probably will not be their first priority, parents can help make sure this Halloween will be a safe one by following these tips:

  • Costumes should be bright and reflective and not drag on the ground; masks should allow for unobstructed vision and kid’s shoes should fit their feet.
  • Make sure young children are accompanied by an adult, even if it’s not you.
  • Pack a flashlight in the candy bag for use while walking after dark.
  • Stay away from houses that are dark.
  • If there is no sidewalk, walk on the left side of the road, facing traffic using the flashlight for safety.
  • A cell phone should be handy to call 911 in case of emergency.
  • Inspect all candy. Although tampering is rare, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
  • As a homeowner, it is your duty to make sure the yard is clear of anything that could be a tripping hazard (i.e. hoses, ladders, flower pots, dog toys, unlit steps).
  • Jack O’Lanterns should be lit by battery-powered flame, not a candle, to prevent a costume, bag, or decoration from catching fire.
  • Lock your dog or cats up in a room where they can’t see the trick-or-treaters. And don’t forget, chocolate can be deadly to pets.  Make sure kids don’t try to feed your family pet a treat!
