Trick or Treat Safety Tips

There's no trick to keeping children safe on Halloween; it just takes some basic precautions to make sure the evening is a treat.

Here are four tips for ensuring trick or treating is both safe and fun:

  1. Take along your own lighting. Use a flashlight and put reflective tape on costumes and goody bags to help drivers see children as they go from house to house.
  2. Use the buddy system. Children should not trick-or-treat alone. They should walk in groups or with a trusted adult. Tell your children to be aware and alert at all times, and visit only well-lit homes. Teach your children to never approach or get in a car with a stranger and never enter the home of a stranger.
  3. Dress for success. To reduce the risk of eye injuries, avoid wearing decorative contact lenses, which may cause infection or injury. In addition, ensure all costume accessories are soft and pliable.
  4. Look before you eat. Children should eat only factory-wrapped treats. Discard any homemade treats or any candy or treat found unwrapped. Prevent possible allergy exposure, bacteria and, lastly, poison by only allowing wrapped, sealed treats.
