Stay safe when trick-or-treating

October 30, 2013

We know a number of little ones will be out searching for candy in a variety of costumes.  Here are some tips to keeping your children safe while doing so.

  1. According to the NHTSA, twice as many children are hit by a car on Halloween than any other day of the year.  Make sure your child’s costume is highly visible to oncoming cars.  Use reflective tape on their costumes and/or bags.  Remind your children to look both ways prior to crossing the street.
  2. Encourage your children to leave their cellphones in their pockets while walking.  Texting and walking is just about as dangerous as texting and driving.
  3. Remind your children to stay out of the houses and cars of strangers.
  4. Do not let your children wear decorative contact lens, these lead to a number of ER visits each year.
  5. Only let your children eat factory-wrapped treats.  Even a well intentioned homemade treat may contain allergens or contaminants.
  6. Make sure they stay away from lit candles and wear a flame-resistant costume.
  7. Have fun!
