Table of Contents


Halloween is coming, and with it comes a handful of risks to be aware of. Halloween should be a fun occasion. Be sure to celebrate safely.

Walk Safely

  • Use caution when crossing the street. It’s getting dark earlier, and cars may have trouble seeing pedestrians.
  • Make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street.
  • Join your children when they’re trick-or-treating, particularly if they’re unfamiliar with the area.

Dress Safely

  • Using glow sticks or reflective tape is a great way to ensure your children are visible to drivers.
  • If a costume has long draped fabric, use extra caution when around open flames like candles and fire pits.

Drive Safely

  • Turn your headlights on earlier in the day.
  • Get rid of distractions like your phone. Increased foot traffic means you should always be aware of your surroundings.
  • Drive slower, especially when traveling through residential neighborhoods.
