5 Things You Should Know: Halloween Safety Tips for Kids and Parents


Trick-or-Treating Safety

One trick to staying safe on Halloween is to trick-or-treat with a friend, or friends. Here are a few more:

  • An adult or an older child should accompany young children from door to door.
  • Visit only houses that have lights on, and best of all visit only the homes of people you know.
  • While out and about, stick to well-lit streets, preferably with sidewalks to keep both kids and adults alike safe from traffic.
  • Walk (don't run) from house to house to keep safe from cars and any obstacles unseen in the dark.
  • Carry a flashlight to light the way as well as light you up for cars and other trick-or-treaters.
