Halloween is a fun time of year for families, but by taking some simple precautions, it can also be a safe time.

 

Here are some great guidelines, straight from the National Safety Council:

 

 

Costume Safety

•  All costumes, wigs and accessories should be fire-resistant

 

•  Avoid masks, which can obstruct vision

 

•  If children are allowed out after dark, fasten reflective tape to their costumes and bags, or give them glow sticks

 

•  When buying Halloween makeup, make sure it is nontoxic and always test it in a small area first

 

•  Remove all makeup before children go to bed to prevent skin and eye irritation

 

 

When They’re on the Prowl

•  A responsible adult should accompany young children on the neighborhood rounds

 

•  If your older children are going alone, plan and review a route acceptable to you

 

•  Agree on a specific time children should return home

 

•  Teach your children never to enter a stranger’s home or car

 

•  Instruct children to travel only in familiar, well-lit areas and stick with their friends

 

•  Tell your children not to eat any treats until they return home

 

•  Children and adults are reminded to put electronic devices down, keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street

 

 

Safety Tips for Motorists

•  Watch for children walking on roadways, medians and curbs

 

•  Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully

 

•  At twilight and later in the evening, watch for children in dark clothing

 

•  Discourage new, inexperienced drivers from driving on Halloween
