Halloween Safety Tips

With Halloween around the corner, Parkland Health has some tips on how to trick or treat safely on the spooky holiday. Everyone loves a good scare, but children and adults alike need to take safety measures to prevent accidents and injuries.

Keep these tips in mind when your children are out on Halloween night:

• Young children should be accompanied by an adult when trick or treating.

• Plan with your child on what time they should return home.

• Teach your children never to enter a stranger's home or car.

• Children should stay in familiar, well-lit areas and stick with their friends.

For drivers on Halloween night:

• Watch for children walking on roads, medians and curbs.

• Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully.

• Watch for children in dark clothing and costumes, especially in the evening.

• Always drink responsibly and plan a sober ride.
