Halloween is tomorrow and kids and families will be headed out trick-or-treating!
It is very important to have fun, but most importantly to keep in mind of everyone's safety throughout the night. A few safety tips to follow:
- Wear bright coloured Halloween costumes, preferably with reflective material to be extra visible.
- Ensure costumes fit properly and are not too long and allow for room to wear warm clothing underneath.
- Carry a flashlight.
- Use face paint instead of wearing a mask.
- Trick or treat with friends or in a group, never alone.
- Advise parents of your route.
- Go to homes that are well lit.
- Never go inside a house or car to get your treat.
- Do not eat treats before an adult has checked them.
- Accompany all young children.
- Review safety rules with children.
- Establish a curfew for older children.
- Prepare homes for trick or treaters by clearing porches, lawns and sidewalks clear of obstructions.
- Drivers are urged to drive with extra patience and caution.
- Reduce your speed.
- Watch for children crossing the street.
- Do not become distracted.
