Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!

The spooky season is upon us! Keep your little ghouls and goblins safe when they’re trick-or-treating.

  • Make sure your trick-or-treaters are easy to spot on Halloween night. Purchase glow sticks or small flashlights to help them stand out.
  • Don’t forget to clear walkways, porches and entryways for visiting pumpkins and ghosts.
  • Drivers – slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways.
  • Eliminate distractions and put electronic devices down.
  • Always accompany your children when they are trick-or-treating.
  • Check candy before letting your child eat it. Avoid homemade treats made by strangers.
  • Consider alternatives to trick-or-treating in neighborhoods such as a community trunk-or-treat or a candy scavenger hunt with friends and family at your home.
