Keep your Kids Safe this Halloween


According to experts at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “Children are four times more likely to be hit by a car on Halloween night than on any other night of the year”.

Here are some tips:

– Local community centers, shopping malls or schools should be encouraged to organize Halloween festivities that allow kids to “trick-or-treat” without walking outside in the dark.

– If kids do go out at night, make sure they stick to the sidewalks and obey traffic signals.

– Remind children to stay together in a group with at least one adult chaperone.

– Be sure children are aware of the potential dangers from strangers, and remind them to stay in familiar areas.

– Avoid masks that block children’s vision and costumes that could cause them to trip, such as baggy pants and high heels.

– Make sure costume fabrics and accessories are made of flame-resistant materials, such as nylon or polyester.

– Keep kids away from candlelit Jack-O-Lanterns.

– Inspect all candy before children eat it and dispose of anything not in a sealed wrapper.

– Bring a flashlight while trick-or-treating to increase visibility.

– Costume accessories, such as wands and swords, should be made from safe, flexible materials and not have any sharp edges.
