All kids love to trick-or-treat, but remember these important guidelines to ensure that your kids remain safe...

 

• Always travel in small groups, accompanied by an adult if under the age of 12.

• Refrain from dressing up in very long costumes and oversized shoes, which can easily cause you to trip.

• Walk, do not run, from house to house.

• Travel only in familiar neighborhoods.

• Only stop at houses or apartment buildings that are well lit. 

• Remain outside the door and never enter a person’s home.

• Wear reflective tape on costumes and bags so you are visible to traffic and other trick-or-treaters.

• Always walk on sidewalks.  In neighborhoods with no sidewalks, walk on the left side of the street, facing traffic.

• Always cross streets as a group on established crosswalks.

• Whenever possible, use makeup instead of masks.  Besides being uncomfortable, masks can obstruct a child’s view of traffic, steps, and holiday decorations.

• Never eat candy before returning home and having a parent or responsible adult inspect it.
