4 Quick Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween safety tip, kids trick or treating

Trick-or-Treating Safety


  • No child should go trick-or-treating alone. Always accompany your younger children; older children can go in groups.
  • Allow children to go trick-or-treating early but avoid the evening rush hour. It's harder for motorists to see clearly during twilight than at any other time of day.
  • Give children specific neighborhood boundaries for trick-or-treating. Set a firm curfew for your children.
  • Remind children to walk on sidewalks and be cautious when crossing streets.
  • Tell children to only go to homes and neighbors they know and only to houses with lights on.
  • Tell children to turn down all invitations to enter homes. Period.
  • Tell children to avoid even normally friendly neighborhood dogs, who can be startled by kids they know who are dressed in unfamiliar costumes.
