October 31st is almost here! According to the US Census Bureau, there will be an estimated 41.1 million trick-or-treaters ages 5-14 hitting the streets nationwide this year in search of candy. That number doesn’t include the number of teenagers ages 15+ that will be joining them! We know your kiddos have been keeping you busy with Halloween parties and last-minute costume ideas, but safety is, of course, number one. So if you are going trick-or-treating this year, follow a few tricks to have a Safe Halloween courtesy of the CDC.

 

S.A.F.E  H.A.L.L.O.W.E.E.N

 

S- Swords, knives, and all costume accessories should be short, soft and flexible

A- Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult

F- Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags so drivers can see you

E- Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. Limit the number of treats you eat.

H- Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you. WALK and don’t run from house to house.

A- Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible skin and eye irritation.

L- Look both ways before crossing the street. Use crosswalks wherever possible.

L- Lower your risk for serious eye injury by not wearing decorative contact lens.

O- Only walk on sidewalks whenever possible, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe.

W- Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls.

E- Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers.

E- Enter homes only if you’re with a trusted adult. Only visit well-lit houses. Never accept rides from strangers.

N- Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flame-resistant costumes.

 

We hope everyone enjoys a safe and Happy Halloween!
