Safety Tips for a Happy Halloween

The American Red Cross has released a list of tips to keep everyone safe on Halloween night.

On Costume Safety:
  • Add reflective tape to costumes and trick-or-treat bags.
  • Use flame-resistant costumes.
  • Use face makeup instead of masks, which can cover their eyes and make it hard to see.
When Trick or Treating:
  • Make sure trick-or-treaters have a flashlight.
  • Visit only the homes that have a porch light on. Accept treats at the door--never go inside.
  • Walk only on the sidewalks, not in the street. If no sidewalk is available, walk at the edge of the roadway, facing traffic.
  • Look both ways before crossing the street, and cross only at the corner.
  • Don't cut across yards or use alleys. Don't cross between parked cars. Be cautious around strange animals, especially dogs.
On Greeting Trick or Treaters: 
  • Make sure the outdoor lights are on.
  • Sweep leaves from sidewalks and steps.
  • Clear the porch or front yard of any obstacles that a child could trip over.
  • Restrain pets.
To avoid a fire hazard with jack-o-lanterns, try using a glow stick instead of a candle. 

Enjoy and be safe! \m/ (^v^) \m/
