Encourage Halloween Safety by Following These Trick-or-Treat Tips

Trick-or-treating is a classic source of Halloween fun, and one that makes this autumn holiday a favorite among children. Kids eager to collect candy, however, can easily overlook risks that may lead to injury. Help your family stay safe this Halloween by keeping in mind a few simple trick-or-treat safety tips, such as:

  • Accompany children, especially if they are small. If you choose to allow older children to go trick-or-treating without adult supervision, designate the neighborhoods they may enter ahead of time and instruct them to stick together. Give older children a curfew time, and send a cell phone with them if possible so they can call if a problem occurs.
  • Walk only on sidewalks, and cross only at corners and/or designated crosswalks. Never run into the street in the dark, cars may not see you coming until it is too late to avoid a pedestrian accident.
  • Only approach houses where the lights are on, indicating that trick-or-treaters are welcome. Remind children never to enter another person’s house unless they know the family, and never to accept a ride in a car, especially from a stranger.
  • Inspect all treats before giving them to kids. Remind kids not to eat any of their candy until it has been inspected.
