Celebrate Halloween safely

Sunday, October 31, 2021


Be safe this Halloween. When trick or treating in residential areas, you can begin at 5 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. Adults supervision is highly recommended, especially for younger children.

Please only go to the doors of homes with their lights on. That is usually a good indication that they are participating in Halloween. (Homeowners should keep their porch lights out if they are not handing out candy.)

Before Halloween arrives, be sure to choose a costume that won't cause safety hazards:

  • All costumes, wigs and accessories should be fire-resistant
  • If children are allowed out after dark, fasten reflective tape to their costumes and bags, or give them glow sticks
  • Opt for nontoxic Halloween makeup over masks, which can obscure vision; always test makeup in a small area first to see if any irritation develops
  • Remove all makeup before children go to bed to prevent skin and eye irritation

Children are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed on Halloween than on any other day of the year. Lack of visibility because of low lighting at night also plays a factor in these incidents. Keep these tips in mind when your children are out on Halloween night:

  • A responsible adult should accompany young children on the neighborhood rounds
  • If your older children are going alone, plan and review a route acceptable to you
  • Agree on a time children that should return home
  • Teach your children never to enter a stranger's home or car
  • Instruct children to travel only in familiar, well-lit areas and stick with their friends
  • Tell your children not to eat any treats until they return home
  • Children and adults are reminded put electronic devices down, keep heads up and walk, don't run, across the street

Anyone who plans to be driving during trick-or-treat hours:

Watch for children walking on roadways, medians and curbs

Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully

At twilight and later in the evening, watch for children in dark clothing

Discourage new, inexperienced drivers from driving on Halloween
