Halloween safety tips for kids and homeowners

For Children 

  • Younger trick-or-treaters should be supervised by an adult.
  • Older children should trick-or-treat in large groups, if they are not accompanied by an adult.
  • Parents should know the route their older children are taking and they should stay in touch with the group periodically
  • Trick-or-treaters should only visit homes that are well-lighted and that are obviously welcoming Halloween guests. 
  • Trick-or-treaters should carry flashlights and use reflective tape on their costumes so that motorists can see them. 
  • Trick-or-treaters should stay on sidewalks and obey pedestrian rules.
  • Children should not eat any trick-or-treat candy until it is inspected by an adult.

For Pets      

  • Chocolate is not good for pets, even a small amount can be deadly.  Sugar-free candy and gum can also be harmful.
  • On Halloween, if possible, keep pets inside or in a protected area of the yard.
  • Watch pets when children come to the door.

For Your Home

  • Light your home well.
  • Remove obstacles from your front porch and yards so that visitors don’t stumble or trip.
  • Use artificial candles to avoid fire hazards.
