Happy Halloween!

Halloween is always a fun and exciting time for kids, but there are many hazards to look out for. Help keep the little ones in your life safe this year by following some simple safety tips!

1. Wear bright colored, easy to see clothing and costumes. If your little one is wearing a dark costume attach some reflective tape to it or have them wear glow sticks, bracelets, or necklaces. 

2. Do NOT trick or treat alone. Younger children should ALWAYS be with a trusted adult. For older children make sure they are with a group of friends. 

3. Do not accept homemade goods or unwrapped candy. 

4. Examine ALL candy for evidence of tampering.

5. Do not go inside a strangers house.. Duh. 

6. Always cross the street at corners or crosswalks. Look both ways before crossing!

7. Carry a flash light so others (especially drivers) can see you.  

8. Make sure your child's costume fits appropriately to avoid tripping and falling. This includes masks.

9. Go over your ground rules and expectations with your little monsters.

10. Use your common sense. Avoid situations that make you or your child feel uncomfortable.

Have fun and be safe!!
