[ARCHIVED] Children's Tips for A Safe Halloween

Try to Trick-or-Treat when it is still light outside.

Wear a costume that makes it easy for you to walk, see and be seen.

If you must go out at night, make certain that your costume is light in color.

Carry a flashlight so you can see and be seen easily.

Use reflective tape on your costume so people driving cars can see you.

A face mask will keep you from seeing well. Take off your mask before you cross a street.

Why not use makeup instead of a mask?

Have a parent, older brother or sister go Trick-or-Treating with you.

If someone older cannot go with you, Trick-or-Treat with a group of children.

Plan your Trick-or-Treat route ahead of time. Pick streets that are well-lighted.

Tell your family on which streets you will be Trick-or-Treating.

Cross only at corners. Never cross the street between parked cars or in the middle of the block.

If there is no sidewalk, walk facing traffic.

Wait until you get home to sort, check and eat your treats.
