Get ready for a SAFE Halloween!

Halloween is quickly approaching!!! The Center for Disease Control has some tips on how to keep your kiddos safe when having fun trick-or-treating.

  • Swords, knives, and other costume accessories should be short, soft, and flexible.

  • Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult.

  • Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you.

  • Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. Limit the amount of treats you eat.

  • Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you. WALK and don’t run from house to house.

  • Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible skin and eye irritation.

  • Look both ways before crossing the street. Use crosswalks wherever possible.

  • Lower your risk for serious eye injury by not wearing decorative contact lenses.

  • Only walk on sidewalks whenever possible, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe.

  • Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls.

  • Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers.

  • Enter homes only if you’re with a trusted adult. Only visit well-lit houses. Never accept rides from strangers.

  • Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flame-resistant costumes.

Have a S-A-F-E H-A-L-L-O-W-E-E-N!!
