Halloween is a fun holiday for the whole family. As  parents with your little ghosts, goblins or super heroes, a safe holiday is the best kind of holiday to have.

Safety for the Neighborhood Walk: 

  • Use Cross Walks don’t cut corners.
  • Seems simple but you can forget on nights like this. Look right an d left, then look again.
  • Have the kids watch for car back or turning, no darting or walkign between parked cars.
  • Always use sidewalks when able, if not, walk facing traffic ad far out of the way as possible.
  • All kids under 12 should have adult supervision while trick or treating. If old enough to go without supervision, make sure they stick to familiar and well-lit areas.

Wow with the creativity, cuteness and safety of the costume:

  • Decorate costumes and candy bags with reflective tape if possible.
  • Face Paints or makeup can be preferable to masks, as masks can obscure vision.
  • Make sure it is the right size to prevent trips and falls.
  • Have kids carry glow sticks and flash lights to be seen by drivers.

Watch Out Drivers:

  • Drive without distractions so you can be extra careful and full alert to any kids crossing.
  • Popular trick or treat hours are between 5:30-9:30pm so be especially careful during this time.
  • Slow down and take extra time at intersections, medians and curbs.
  • Turn your headlights on sooner to see from greater distances for extra pedestrian traffic.
