HALLOWEEN SAFETY TIPS FOR GHOULS AND GOBLINS

From the candy to the costumes, Halloween can be a fun time for parents and kids alike. When you combine children with dark streets, you have a formula for danger. According to Safe Kids Worldwide, the risk of children being hit by a car is higher on Halloween then any other day of the year. To reduce the dangers, follow these Halloween Safety Tips to stay safe on the spookiest of holidays.

Be Safe – Be Seen on Halloween

A good Halloween safety tip is to choose costumes and treat bags that are bright and reflective. If your child’s costume or treat bag is not reflective, you can affix reflective tape to them. Choose costumes that fit well. Pants that are too baggy or costumes too cumbersome increase the risk of falling.

Light Up the Darkness

Encourage children to use glow sticks or flashlights. Children under the age of 12 should always be accompanied by an adult. If you are not accompanying them, ask your child their intended route. Make sure they are not going alone and you that know the friends they are going with.

When the Kids Return Home

An important halloween safety tip is to sort through your child’s candy with them. Throw away any items that are opened, tampered with, or if the seal is broken Be mindful of any allergies.

Halloween Safety Tips for Visiting Ghouls

If you are a homeowner, make sure your sidewalk and front door are well lit and free of any debris. Keep family pets away from trick-or-treaters, even if they seem harmless to you.

Be Smart. Be Safe. Have Fun. Happy Halloween!

Recommendation to Blessing

I had a lawyer working on my insurance claim that was extremely unprofessional and after 8 months of getting nowhere, I fired him. Dexter Evans was recommended to me by a family member.
