Hazards of Halloween

October 24, 2018

- In today’s world, young children should be accompanied by a responsible adult on Halloween. Teach your children to never enter a stranger’s home or car and encourage them to use some common sense. Remind them to keep their heads up as they move from house to house. Be alert and put electronic devices away.

 

- Try and make sure the Halloween costume your child selects is fire-resistant. All wigs and accessories should be as well. Avoid masks which can obstruct vision.

 

- When inspecting your children’s candy, only eat factory wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers.

 

- Your child is more than 2x more likely to be hit by a car and killed on Halloween than on any other day of the year. In 2018, October ranked number 2 in motor vehicle deaths by month. Watch for children, use extra caution when entering or exiting your driveway, and be alert for children in dark clothing that blend with the night.

 

- If you’re throwing a Halloween party, provide healthier options for your guests. You can even offer non-alcoholic drinks and low-calorie treats. Be sure walking areas and stairs are well lit. Remind drivers to watch out for trick-or-treaters and of course, it never hurts to lock away valuables in your safe with a house full of people.
