Keep Safe This Halloween - Some Tips For Parents, Drivers and Homeowners

This Halloween will be like many others - filled with festive costumes, glowing jack-o-lanterns and children running door-to-door yelling trick-or-treat. However, this holiday also means children are typically out after sunset - creating potentially hazardous conditions for drivers, home owners, parents and trick-or-treaters.

To help keep trick-or-treaters safe, here are some helpful Halloween Safety Tips that everyone can use to ensure that Halloween is a night of treats and not a night a fright.

Some Simple Halloween Safety Tips:

  • Drive carefully over hills, around curves and approaching stop signs or cross walks
  • Enter and exit driveways with caution
  • Watch for children walking in the street in neighborhoods without sidewalks
  • Use bright colored clothing or add reflective tape to costumes to increase visibility
  • Give children flash lights or glow sticks to help illuminate walkways and sidewalks
  • Discuss a trick-or-treating route with children
  • Carry a cell phone in case of an emergency
  • Check all candy before allowing children to consume it
  • Clear all debris and clutter from walkways, stairs and yard
  • Instead of candles, use battery powered lanterns or light sticks to light jack-o-lanterns
  • Do not overload outlets
  • Turn on front door light and light walkway to welcome trick-or-treaters
