Happy Halloween all!

If you’re going trick or treating, please observe (and share with your kids) the following safety tips.

  • Carry/use a flashlight.

  • If not with your parent, trick or treat in groups of three or more.

  • Take a cell phone in case you need to call home.

  • Do not enter an unfamiliar home.

  • Don't get into a car with a stranger.

  • Walk, don't run in the street.

  • Stay on sidewalks whenever possible. If there's no sidewalk, walk on the left side of the road facing traffic.

  • Obey traffic signals.

  • Stay in familiar neighborhoods.

  • Don't cut across yards or driveways.

  • Wear a watch you can read in the dark (illuminates).

  • Make sure costumes don't drag on the ground.

  • Avoid wearing masks that are hard to see through when walking from around.

  • Wear clothing with reflective markings or tape.

  • Approach houses that are lit only.

  • Stay away from and don't try to pet animals you don't know.

  • Don't eat any candy until your parents have inspected the wrappers.
