Halloween Safety Tips
Please remember the following safety tips as  you go out trick or treating:
  • Put reflective tape or have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers. 
  • When crossing the street...teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
  • Choose face paint and makeup whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct a child's vision.
  • Make sure there is an adult present at all times and that the kids do not run ahead or go out into the street without the adult's supervision.
  • Do not allow the children to eat the candy until they get home and you have had a chance to inspect it.
  • Throw out any unwrapped or opened candy.
