Halloween Safety Tips

The National Confectioners Association has established the following safety tips to help make this Halloween a safe and enjoyable one:

  • Wear light-colored clothing that’s short enough to prevent tripping and add reflective tape to the sides, front and back of costume.
  • Make sure children can see well through face masks, or use cosmetics to create fun or scary faces.
  • Adults should accompany young children
  • Go out in daylight and carry a flashlight in case of delay
  • Stay within the neighborhood and only visit homes you know
  • Watch for traffic
  • Only give and accept wrapped or packaged candy
  • Examine all candy before allowing children to eat it
  • Keep costumed children away from pets.  The pet may not recognize the child and become frightened
  • Avoid hard plastic or wood props such as daggers or swords.  Substitute with foam rubber which is soft and flexible.
