Halloween Safety

October 2016

Halloween Safety Tips:   

  • Be very careful when carving a pumpkin. Get a parent to help.
  • Carry a flashlight.
  • Use an environmentally friendly bag. They are less likely to tear and can be painted to match the costume.
  • Wear comfortable shoes.
  • Travel in groups. Take a few friends or relatives along.
  • WALK — don't run from house to house.
  • Never go to a stranger's home.
  • Walk in well-lit areas.
  • Don't cut through alleyways, laneways or abandoned homes. Stay on the sidewalks.
  • Never cut across a busy street. Use the lights or a crosswalk.
  • Don't accept rides.
  • Don't push your way through to get candy. You, or someone else, could fall.
