Have a Happy Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween is a fun time for kids, but it is also an important time to be extra vigilant for possible safety hazards so that your children have a fun and safe Halloween. Some tips to make Halloween safe include:

Always use common sense.
Young children should always go trick-or-treating with an adult.
Never trick-or-treat alone.
Have at least 2 buddies go with you.
Plan your entire route and make sure your family knows what it is.
Make sure that you are wearing a flame retardant costume.
Wait until you get home and your parents check your candy before you eat it.
Be very cautious of strangers.
Accept treats only in the doorway. Never go inside a house.
Be sure and say thank you for your treats.
Don't play near lit jack-o-lanterns.
Visit only houses where the lights are on.
Walk, Do not run.
Walk on sidewalks and driveways.
Cross the street at the corner or in a crosswalk.
