Tips for surviving Halloween


Whether you’re prepping kids for a night out or heading out for your own festivities, use these tips to keep your Halloween free from scary mishaps.

If your kids are trick-or-treating:

  • Add reflective tape to costumes or candy bags for better visibility
  • Make sure you and your kid(s) are equipped with flashlights
  • Use costume makeup instead of masks to avoid obstructed eyesight
  • Pin long costumes and wear comfortable shoes to prevent tripping
  • Ditch pointed accessories like swords and sticks
  • Accompany your kids out or arrange for them to trick-or-treat with a group supervised by an adult
  • Teach your kids how to safely cross the street and check for oncoming traffic
  • Only visit a home if the porch light is on
  • Plan a route and stay together
  • Examine treats and toss out anything unwrapped

No kids?

  • Slow down and drive carefully, and keep an eye out for children crossing the street
  • Properly restrain your pets
  • If you’re handing out treats, clear your yard of any items visitors may trip on
  • Keep your home and walkways well-lit
  • Replace jack-o’-lantern candles with flameless candles or glow sticks

Have a safe — and spooky — Halloween!
