Halloween Safety Tips

WHEN TRICK-OR-TREATING:

A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds.
Remind Trick-orTreaters:

By using a flashlight, they can see and be seen by others.

Stay in a group and communicate where they will be going.

Only go to homes with a porch light on.

Remain on well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk.

If no sidewalk is available, walk at the farthest edge of the roadway facing traffic.

Never cut across yards or use alleys.

Never enter a stranger’s home or car for a treat.

Obey all traffic and pedestrian regulations.

Always walk.  Never run across a street.

Only cross the street as a group in established crosswalks (as recognized by local custom).

Remove any mask or item that will limit eyesight before crossing a street, driveway or alley.

Don’t assume the right of way.  Motorists may have trouble seeing trick-or-treaters.  Just because one car stops, doesn’t mean others will!

Never consume unwrapped food items or open beverages that may be offered.

No treats are to be eaten until they are thoroughly checked by an adult at home.

Law enforcement authorities should be notified immediately of any suspicious or unlawful activity.
