Choose a flame-retardant costume, and attach reflective tape to it.
Make sure costumes are short enough to prevent tripping or entanglement.
Inspect your own yard, porch, and walkway to eliminate tripping hazards like rakes, hoses, toys, etc.
Make sure your home and walkways are well-lit.
Always accompany young kids on the entire trick-or-treat route.
If your kids are older, talk to them about the route they should follow, and agree on a return time.
Tell your kids to stop only at well-lit homes and never to enter a stranger’s home or car.
Teach kids their home phone number and how to call 9-1-1.
Feed your kids before they go trick-or-treating, and tell them not to eat any treats until they return home.
Secure your pets. They might be frightened by strange costumes and sounds.
If you light your jack-o’-lantern with a candle, keep it away from drapes and fabrics.
Be extra cautious when driving. Watch for kids in dark clothing who might dart into your path.
Carry a flashlight to see and be seen.
Walk slowly and stay in a group.
Don’t cut across yards or driveways.
Cross the street only at corners, and stay on sidewalks.
Avoid strange neighborhoods, and approach only homes that have a light on.
Wear a watch you can read in the dark.
Be extra careful when wearing masks, which can block your vision. Watch out for cars, in particular.
Stay away from pets you don’t know.
Let your parents examine your treats before you eat them.
