Halloween Safety Tips

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

We hope you all have a Happy and SAFE Halloween and we wanted to share some safety tips from our friends at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

  1. Instruct your older children to take friends when Trick or Treating.
  2. Make sure a trusted adult, an older child, or you accompany your younger children when Trick or Treating. A trusted adult is a person parents/guardians have come to rely on and with whom they and their children feel comfortable.
  3. Accompany, or make sure a trusted adult accompanies, your younger children to the door of every home they approach. Become familiar with each home your child visits and the people who are providing Halloween treats to your children.
  4. Teach your children to only enter homes with your prior permission and only approach homes that are well-lit both inside and outside.
  5. Teach your children to NEVER approach a vehicle unless they are accompanied by you, even if it appears that no one is inside the vehicle.
  6. Make sure your children wear reflective clothing and carry a flashlight or glow stick when traveling during the evening hours.
  7. Make sure your children are able to see and breathe properly and easily when using facial masks. All costumes and masks should be clearly marked as flame resistant.
  8. Teach your children to always stay in well-lit areas, never take shortcuts, and never go into isolated areas.
  9. Teach your children to stay alert for any suspicious incidents and report anything unusual to you and/or law enforcement.
  10. Teach your children if anyone tries to grab them to draw attention to themselves and loudly yell “This person is trying to take me,” or “This person is not my father/mother.” Instruct your children to make every effort to escape by walking, running, or pulling away; yelling; kicking; attracting attention; and/or otherwise resisting.
  11. Consider organizing or attending parties at home, in schools, or in community centers as a good alternative to Trick or Treating.
