Seasonal Safety Tips
Halloween is a cherished tradition that children look forward to. To help keep your trick-or-treaters safe, remember the following tips.
Accompany children along their route.
Walk on the sidewalks, not in the street.
Travel in groups.
Wear bright, reflective and flame retardant clothing.
Make sure costumes or masks do not block a child's vision.
Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape.
Do not talk to strangers along the way.
Go only to well-lit houses with porch lights on.
Do not enter a home.
Bring candy home for inspection - if in doubt, throw it out.
Report any suspicious or criminal activity to the police.
