Halloween Safety Tips sponsored by OMEGA International Security

  • A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds.
  • Never go inside a house or car to receive candy
  • Obtain flashlights with fresh batteries for all children and their escorts.
  • If older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when they should return home.
  • Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat.
  • Stay in a group and communicate where you will be going.
  • Remember reflective tape for costumes and trick-or-treat bags.
  • Carry a cellphone for quick communication.
  • Review with children how to call 9-1-1, if they ever have an emergency or become lost.
  • Remain on well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk.
  • If no sidewalk is available, walk at the far edge of the roadway facing traffic.
  • Never cut across yards or use alleys.
  • Only cross the street as a group in established crosswalks (as recognized by local custom). Never cross between parked cars or out driveways.
  • Don’t assume the right of way. Motorists may be distracted or have trouble seeing Trick-or-Treaters. Just because one car stops, doesn’t mean others will!
  • Wait until children are home to sort and check treats. Tampering is rare, a responsible adult should closely examine all treats and throw away any spoiled, unwrapped or suspicious items.
  • Try to ration treats for the days and weeks following Halloween.
  • Authorities should be notified immediately of any suspicious or unlawful activity.
  • When driving, be extra vigilant for pedestrian crossing the road.
  • Don’t drink and drive.
  • Homeowners should take extra care to secure pets so they don’t inadvertently jump on or bite a trick-or-treater.

Have a safe and happy Halloween!
