Free safety tips for all your Halloween shenanigans …I mean fun #trickortreat

Halloween is here in NE Ohio, and safety is still the most important part of the Halloween operation.

Halloween-Safety-Tips

To aid in your shenanigans I mean Halloween activities, here are some tips for you and your family to use during trick-or-treat fun:

  • Check your local newspaper, municipality’s website, or social media feed to get updates on times for trick-or-treating.
  • Make sure you have several working flashlight and so that everyone traveling in your party can be seen.
  • Only visit houses with porch lights that are turned on.
  • Be vigilant while crossing the street – look both ways before you cross and ALWAYS company children.
  • Stay in groups and keep an eye out for each other while trick-or-treating.
  • Hopefully your costumes are bright and reflective. If not, consider affixing reflective stickers or buttons to your costume to make you more visible to motorists.
  • Your costumes accessories should be made from soft pliable materials.
  • Do not eat any candy until you return home to your parents.
  • All parents should inspect and review all candy collected before allowing children to consume.
  • Discard any candy that show signs of tampering and throw away any candy that is not sealed or in the original packaging.
  • After you eat a ton of candy, don’t forget to brush your teeth.

If you are driving this Halloween season, DRIVE SLOWLY! Never text while driving – it is a distraction and likely illegal in many cities. Children will be out and about – so keep a sharp eye for everyone on the street.

Hope you have a fun Halloween this year.
