Child Safety

The big day is almost here and thousands of kids across the nation are preparing to head out or Trick or Treat!  Here are a few tips to help ensure your child’s safety on this fun fright night!

  1. Plan your route in advance - Knowing where you are going and the best way to get there can help keep frustrations at a minimum.

  2. Wear comfortable shoes – Sure those mile-high spiked heels look great with your costume, but if you’re accompanying little ones, your feet can get tired quickly.You can avoid fatigue – and falls over not so level ground – by wearing comfortable shoes that give you some extra traction.

  3. Stay well lit - Flashlights, reflective tape, and glow jewelry all help to make you and your little monsters visible to traffic.

  4. Make sure all costumes are short – Costumes that drag on the ground can be a tripping hazard.Make sure your little ones have items that are a good length for their height.

  5. Avoid masks – Yes, they’re fun, but many masks can hinder eyesight or even breathing.Consider face painting instead.

  6. Use flexible props – Try to make sure any weapons are rubber or plastic to avoid injury to your child or others.

  7. Check your candy – When sorting through candy at the end of the night, throw away any that is not in its original wrapper or looks as if it’s been opened.
