Halloween is coming this Wednesday, October 31, 2012. Here are some general safety tips for parents taking kids out trick-or-treating!
- Prepare and plan ahead where you are taking the children for trick-or-treating.
- Wear warm clothes when going out at night.
- Both parents and children should have glow sticks or bracelet so people and cars can see you.
- Bring flash lights and do use them when crossing the street so drivers know you are on the road and take extra caution when crossing the street at night.
- Bring cell phones or walkie-talkie so you can keep in touch with family or friends go out with your group.
- Most importantly CHECK all things your children received from trick-or-treating before you give to them.
