Halloween Safety

Please drive extra cautious in the neighborhoods and watch out for pedestrians. The following are some safety tips for parents and children: 
  • Teach your children how to properly cross a street. Only cross streets at crosswalks. 
  • Help your child pick out or make a costume that has eye holes large enough for good peripheral vision.
  • For greater visibility during dusk and darkness, decorate or trim costumes with reflective tape that will glow in the beam of a car's headlights. Bags or sacks should also be light colored or decorated with reflective tape. Reflective tape is usually available in hardware, bicycle, and sporting goods stores.
  • To easily see and be seen, children should also carry flashlights or glow sticks.
  • Costumes should be short enough to prevent children from tripping and falling.
  • If your child is carrying a prop, make sure the tips are smooth and flexible enough to not cause injury if fallen on.
  • Know the route your kids will be taking if you aren't going with them.
  • The safest idea is to have an adult accompany kids. If you’re not with the kids, be sure to set a time they will be home by. Make sure they know how important it is for them to be home on time.
  • Children should not enter homes or apartments unless they are accompanied by an adult.
  • Teach your kids about not getting into strangers cars or talking to strangers, no matter what the person says to them. Explain to them as simply as you can that some adults are bad and want to hurt children, that they should never go into a house that they don't know, get into a car or go anywhere with a stranger. Also, tell them what to do should this happen, to scream as loud as they can to draw attention and to run away as fast as they can to some place safe.
  • Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flame-resistant costumes.
