Choose Costumes Carefully
- Select flame-resident labels.
- Look for bright colors and add reflective tape to treat bags and shoes.
- Non-toxic makeup assures greater visibility than masks.
- Avoid costumes that are too long and keep large or sharp accessories home.
- Pass up on monster shoes or high heels and instead send the kids out in well-fitting shows that lace up.
Sit your Child down for a Serious Halloween Safety Talk
- Stay with your group and don’t go out alone.
- NEVER enter a stranger’s car or home.
- Stick with your planned route.
- Don’t eat any treats until you come home.
- Don’t run – walk and stay in well-lit areas.
- Take along your cellphone and a glow stick or flashlight.
*Children under age 10 should be supervised by an adult.
Prepare Yourself for Safety Too
- Make your home, yard and driveway safe for visiting princesses and action heroes. Keep candle-lit pumpkins away from steps and walks – better yet, invest in some battery-operated lights. Remove obstacles like lawn chairs and dog chains that can cause tripping.
