Trick or Treat!

As Halloween approaches, we felt it was appropriate to take a break from the ordinary and talk about preparedness of another sort…preparing your ghouls and goblins for a safe night of trick-or-treating. By taking a few common sense measures, you can ensure a safe and happy Halloween for all. Happy Halloween!

Recommended Safety Tips From The CDC:

S Swords, knives, and similar 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 to help drivers see you.
E Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. Limit the amount of treats you eat.

H Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you.
A Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent skin and eye irritation.
L Look both ways before crossing the street. Use established crosswalks wherever possible.
L Lower your risk for serious eye injury by not wearing decorative contact lenses.
O Only walk on sidewalks 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 unless you know the cook well.
E Enter homes only if you’re with a trusted adult. Otherwise, stay outside.
N Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flame-resistant costumes.
