With all the costumes, the candy, the decorating, Halloween means fun for all. But, unfortunately, Halloween also has some unique dangers that we need to keep in mind and prepare for. From making sure trick-or-treaters can walk on your property safely, to safety tips to keep in mind for costumes. Here are some tips to keep in mind this Halloween.
Ray Schlegel recently joined Good Day NWA to discuss some important safety tips to keep in mind today.
One of the best ways to promote safety is to make sure that your child’s costume is safe.
- Use face paint instead of masks, if possible; masks can obstruct vision
- Give kids flashlights or glow sticks and consider using reflective tape on treat bags or costumes in order to ensure that they are visible
- Make sure costumes are properly sized to avoid tripping and falling
- If the costume requires accessories such as swords or lightsabers, use plastic or flexible ones in order to avoid injury
There are also safety tips to keep in mind while driving tonight. It is important to stay extra vigilant when driving around town.
- Be aware that the busiest times for trick-or-treating is 5:30 – 9:30 p.m.
- Drive slowly, especially when backing out of driveways and through neighborhoods
- Be extra vigilant at intersections
- Do not use your cell phone while driving
- Discourage new drivers from driving on Halloween
- Never drink and drive or drive under the influence of drugs
