If your children will be trick or treating on Halloween, make safety the first priority.
All children should be supervised by an adult.
Take children out while it is still light.
Take young children to only a few familiar houses.
Use a flashlight, even at dusk.
Dress children in light colored costumes with reflective tape.
Make sure the costume fits, to avoid tripping.
Make sure the costume is flame retardant.
Apply face makeup instead of a mask for better visibility.
Teach children to wait at street corners, and look both ways before crossing.
Talk to children about never entering a stranger’s home.
Check candy and fruit before letting children eat it.
