Top 5 Tips to Keep our Kids Safe This Halloween

It’s that time of year when kids take to the streets dressed up as ghost, goblins and perhaps an Elsa or two. Here are a few tips to keep in mind this Halloween to keep them safe.

  1. Make sure the child can see clearly while in costume.
  2. Have a flashlight, glow stick, or reflective sticker for your child, particularly if trick or treating at dusk or dark.
  3. Trick or treat in a group, never alone. Coach your child to stay on the porch step rather than enter the home.
  4. Look both ways before crossing the street and utilize the sidewalks where possible.
  5. Examine the treats for choking hazards and tampering.

Have a safe and happy Halloween!
