Safety First on Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner and that means little ghosts and goblins will be ringing your doorbell for tricks or treats:) If you have little ones enjoying Halloween this year, here are a few safety tips to ensure everyone has a safe and happy Halloween:

On the street

  • Bright and reflective costumes are best to ensure visibility by everyone
  • Keep costumes short to avoid tripping and falling
  • Masks impede vision, try face paint instead
  • Make sure that young children have adult supervision at all times
  • If you are driving on Halloween be extra cautious


In the house

  • Get kids to decorate their pumpkins with paint-if you will be carving make sure that adults do the carving
  • Small battery-powered lights are the safest for use in jack-o’-lanterns
  • If you do use candles place candlelit jack-o’-lanterns on sturdy surfaces, away from anything that can burn such as curtains, costumes and other decorations & never leave a lit candle unattended
