Trick-or-treat with safety in mind

Trick-or-treat with safety in mind

Don’t let safety spook you this Halloween. Before your ghosts and goblins hit the streets to trick-or-treat, talk to them about safety and how simple precautions can make for a fun and safe night.


  • Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape and try to use light colors.
  • Choose face paint and makeup instead of masks, when possible. Masks can obstruct a child’s vision.
  • All costumes and wigs should be fire resistant.

Trick or Treating

  • Trick-or-treat in groups in familiar, well-lit areas.
  • An adult should always accompany younger children.
  • Always walk on sidewalks and paths.
  • Never enter a stranger’s home.
  • Inspect treats and candy before you eat them.


  • Slow down, especially in residential neighborhoods.
  • Eliminate any distractions while driving and anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic.
  • Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully.

Have a happy and safe Halloween and visit the safety page for more tips.
