Trick-or-Treat Safety Tips
- Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult.
- Plan a trick-or-treating route in familiar neighborhoods with well-lit streets.
- Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you. WALK and don’t run from house to house.
- Walk on sidewalks whenever possible, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe.
- Be careful when you cross a street. Make sure to look in both directions and make sure that there are no cars coming. If the street has a stop light, wait until the cross walk light tells you that it is okay to cross , but still check before you cross, looking both ways.
- Choose bright costumes, and have children carry flashlights or glow sticks so they are easily visible. (Try adding reflective tape to costumes and candy bags!)
- Never, ever go into a strangers house or even ring their door for treats unless your parents are with you and say that it’s okay.
- Always walk younger children to the door to receive treats.
- Be sure children do not approach any vehicle, occupied or not, unless you are with them.
- Never accept rides from strangers.
- Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them.
- Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers.
- Make sure children know your cellphone number, their home telephone number and address in case you are separated.
- Consider giving them a cellphone so they can reach you easily.
- Teach children how to call 911 in an emergency.
- Teach children to say “NO!” in a loud voice if someone tries to get them to go somewhere, accept anything other than a treat, or leave with them.
