Before Halloween:

  • Plan costumes that are bright and reflective. Make sure the costume is not a tripping hazard and that shoes fit.
  • Consider adding reflective tape or glow sticks to costumes for greater visibility.
  • Secure emergency identification (name, address, phone number) discreetly within Halloween attire or on a bracelet.
  • Make sure you have fresh batteries for flashlights.
  • Teach kids their home phone number and how to dial 911.
  • Plan the route and rules to be followed.

When Trick or Treating:

  • Try to go trick or treating while it is still daylight outside, unless you are being accompanied by an adult. Take a flashlight anyway.
  • Stay in a group and communicate where you are going.
  • Trick or treat in well-known neighborhoods and at homes that have a porch light on.
  • Don’t cut through alleys or fields.
  • Never enter a stranger’s home or car.
  • Observe all traffic and pedestrian regulations.
  • Never eat unchecked candy. Have an adult inspect your candy.
  • Stay away from open fires and candles.
