Tips For A Safe Halloween
Halloween can be one of the happiest limes ol the year U ?r children,
lite Shallotte Police Department and American Association of
Kunily Practitioners oilers some basic tips to help parents ensure a
Halloween that is sale as well as fun:
?Costumes should be made of flame rctardant materials and Ik* light
colored or reflec tive.
?Children wearing masks should take them oil between trick or-tieat
stops. Make-up is safer than masks
?frick-or-treaters should avoid wearing wigs, which can burst into
flames, and oversized shoes. They should carry a flashlight.
?C htldrcn should avoid dogs, because even their own dog may be
frightened by a costume.
?Walkers should slay on the sidewalk or grass. II they must walk in the
road, they should always face traffic.
?Homeowners who want to participate in Halloween should leave the
front ol their house illuminated.
?Walkways should be free of obstruction, and lighted pumpkins should
not be left where a child's costume could Ik* ignited.
?r rick-or-treaiers should be greeted at the door and not invited inside
It s best to give store-bought treats or non-edible prizes such as crayons,
slickers or small party favors.
?Any treats that arc loose or homemade should be wrapped. Put your
name and phone nnniber on the treats so parents will know where they
?I'arenis should set rules such as boundaries and curfews, and all young
children should be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult.
?C hildren should travel in groups and stay in their own neighborhood.
Ihey shouldn t only go to the lutines of family members and friends.
?I rick-or-treaiers shouldn't eat any candy or other goodies until they
have been examined by a parent. Fruit and candy should be cut into sec
tions before it is eaten.
?Peopie driving tin iiaiioween should be alert for children darting out
into the street.
