Five Tips For Trick-or-Treating Safety
Halloween is one of the most fun holidays of the year; who doesn’t love eating some candy, dressing up in costumes, and having a good time? However, it can also be one of the most dangerous, specifically for trick-or-treaters, if proper precautions aren’t taken to ensure everyone’s safety.
This year, our team is sharing some of our favorite tips on how to trick-or-treat safely, so you and your kids can enjoy the holiday without worry:
Stay With Your Group
It’s important to stay together with your friends and family when trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. This way, everyone can keep an eye on each other and make sure that no one gets lost or separated. If the trick-or-treaters are young, it’s important for there to be adult supervision as they go house to house to avoid and stay on top of any emergencies.
Wear Bright Clothing
The best way to keep safe while trick-or-treating is to wear bright, reflective clothing or tape, so parents and drivers can see you. Halloween festivities typically occur in the evening, and the sun sets earlier and earlier each day, so it’s important to be prepared for when it gets dark.
Cross The Street Carefully
Just like drivers need to watch out for trick-or-treaters, they need to watch out for drivers too! Before letting your kids go out on Halloween, remind them to always stop and look both ways before crossing the street. As well, make sure they know to avoid the roads as much as possible and always walk at the crosswalks.
You’ve probably heard this saying before, and it’s an important one. While going up to strangers’ doors, make sure your kids know never to go inside the house and to be weary if someone asks them to. Also, make sure they know not to talk to anyone they do not know while out on Halloween and any other day.
Bring a Flashlight
Another way to stay safe in the dark this Halloween is to carry a flashlight. Not only can a flashlight help you be seen in the eyes of drivers and adult supervision, but it can also help you avoid injury from falls while walking around the neighborhood. And be sure to check the batteries beforehand!
