Plan For a safe Halloween

  
Trick or Treat With an Adult
-Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision.

-If kids are mature enough to be out without supervision, they should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups.
Keep Costumes Both Creative and Safe
-Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colors.

-Choose face paint and makeup whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct a child’s vision.

-Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers.

Walk Safely 

-Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. 

-Always walk on sidewalks or paths. 

-If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible. 

-Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings.
