Trick-or-Treating and Halloween Safety

Names, Home Address, Phone Number, and 911

The most important tip that you should arm yourself with is making sure that your child knows names, your home address, phone numbers and how to dial 911. If you have a younger child and somehow he or she gets split up from the adults, knowing this information could be really helpful. Make sure you go over this information with them at length. If they have their own cell phone, make sure they understand how to call 911 and what to say in case of an emergency.

Kids Should Never Trick-or-Treat Alone

Your kids should never be allowed to go out trick-or-treating alone. Even if they are older or teenagers, the buddy system should always be used. There really is safety in numbers. The bigger the group, the safer your child will likely be.

Plan Your Route in Advance

Planning your route in advance is a great way to make sure your trick-or-treat outing is safe and less stressful. This might not be necessary if you’re just staying in your own neighborhood. If you’re heading to an unfamiliar area then having a plan is a smart idea.
