Halloween Safety

Your child begs for that special costume for Halloween and wants to go trick-or-treating with their friends. How do you keep them safe? The CDC has a great list that you might find very helpful using the words SAFE HALLOWEEN:

S Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be short, soft, and flexible.

A Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult.

F Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you.

E Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. Limit the amount of treats you eat

H Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you. Always walk and don’t run from house to house.

A Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible skin and eye irritation.

L Look both ways before crossing the street. Use established crosswalks wherever possible.

L Lower your risk for serious eye injury by not wearing decorative contact lenses.

O Only walk on sidewalks whenever possible, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe.

W Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls.

E Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers.

E Enter homes only if you’re with a trusted adult. Only visit well-lit houses. Don’t stop at dark houses. Never accept rides from strangers.

N Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flame-resistant costumes.
