Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween is a fun and spooky holiday, but it's important to prioritize safety. Here are some Halloween safety tips for 2023:

  • Costume Safety:

Choose costumes that are flame-resistant.

Ensure costumes and accessories are visible in low light by using reflective tape or glow sticks.

Avoid masks that obstruct vision.  Opt for face paint or makeup instead.

  • Trick-or-Treating:

Go out in groups with friends or family, and establish a route in advance.

Stick to well-lit areas and use sidewalks. Avoid walking on the road.

Always carry a flashlight or wear glow sticks to remain visible.

Stay off electronic devices while walking to stay aware of your surroundings.

Be cautious of traffic. Look both ways before crossing streets and use crosswalks.

  • Candy Inspection:

Examine all candy before eating it. Check for tampering and ensure it's in its original packaging.

Avoid homemade treats from strangers.

  • Home Safety:

Keep your home well-lit for trick-or-treaters.

Remove tripping hazards from your walkway and yard.

Restrain pets in a separate area to avoid them getting stressed or scaring visitors.

  • Driving Safety:

Drive slowly and cautiously on Halloween night, especially in residential areas.

Eliminate distractions while driving, such as using a phone.

Watch for pedestrians, especially children who may dart out into the road.

  • Social Media Awareness:

Be mindful of what you share on social media. Avoid posting your exact location or plans.

  • Halloween Parties:

If attending a party, designate a sober driver or plan alternative transportation.

Never accept drinks or treats from strangers.

  • Safety for Pets:

Keep pets indoors to prevent them from becoming anxious or lost due to Halloween activities.
