Halloween Safety Tips


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

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