We hope that you have a fun and safe Halloween. Follow these simple safety tips to keep this holiday safe and sweet!

  • Wear light colored clothing or reflective tape so you can  easily be seen.
  • Make sure your costume fits well.
  • Wear face make-up instead of a mask.
  • Go trick-or-treating with friends. It is more fun and safer too!
  • Trick-or-treat in familiar neighborhoods.
  • Young children should be accompanied by an adult.
  • Trick-or-treat during daylight. Carry a flashlight in case it gets dark.
  • Look both ways before crossing the street and always use crosswalks.
  • Visit homes with porch lights on.
  • When trick-or-treating with friends, tell mom and dad your route.
  • Bring your treats home and do not eat anything until your parents have checked it.
  • If any treats look suspicious, have your parents call the police.
