From the candy to the costumes, Halloween is a fun-filled time for kids and parents alike. But it can pose dangers to young revelers.

To help make this year’s festivity a trick-free treat, follow these simple safety tips:

  • Plan your trick-or-treating route before you leave and show the kids where you’ll be going
  • Double-check any costumes with masks to make sure kids can see clearly
  • Use reflective tape on dark costumes
  • Carry a flashlight or glow stick
  • Only visit houses with porch lights on
  • Make sure all kids know that under NO circumstances should they enter a home
  • If your child has an identification card (a school ID, etc), make sure to bring it along
  • Make sure an adult is with anyone under 16 (if older kids are going in a group, set a time for them to be home, or follow them at a safe, but not embarrassing distance)
  • Remind your kids to stay out of the street!
  • Be on the lookout for cars when crossing – sometimes, it’s hard for drivers to see you!
  • Check ALL candy and treats before eating (bring some candy from home, so the kids can snack before you inspect)
