Trick or Treating Safety


Halloween is a fun and exciting time! We want you and your family to have a great time if you go out trick or treating, so we’ve come up with a list of safety tips to help the night stay fun:

Never trick or treat alone!  

Stay with your children. 

Plan your trick or treat route. 

Lights! Try to stick to areas that are well-lit and take a flashlight to help.

Flame resistant costumes.

Stay on sidewalks and pedestrians watch for cars.

Watch out for fire — be cautious of lit jack-o-lanterns, especially with costumes.

Wear shoes that fit well.

Be cautious with face paint — use nontoxic and beware that allergic reactions happen often. 

Candy — eat only factory-made candy that you recognize and is sealed. Be sure to inspect each piece.

Teal pumpkins mean that a house is food allergy friendly. This is a great stop for those with food allergies!  

Don’t enter homes.

Don’t accept rides from strangers.

If you’re suspicious, back off.

Beware of pets.

Be careful driving.
