Halloween Safety Tips for Trick or Treating



Were having some spooky fun here at the Credit Union today. If youre in the neighborhood, stop by for a treat! We more than likely have your favorite on hand. We want to make sure everyone has a safe and fun Halloween so here are some tips to keep in mind as you head out tonight, courtesy of www.halloween-safety.com


  • Children should always go out trick or treating accompanied by a responsible adult. If you have a group of kids going, the parents should choose two or three of them to go along and keep an eye on things.

  • Plan a safe route so parents know where their older kids will be at all times. Set a time for their return home. Make sure that your child is old enough and responsible enough to go out by themselves. Make sure that they have a cell phone.

  • Let your children know not to cut through back alleys and fields if they are out alone. Make sure they know to stay in populated areas and not to go off the beaten track. Let them know to stay in well lighted areas with lots of people around. Explain to them why it can be dangerous for kids not to do this. If they are going out alone, they are old enough to know what can happen to them in a bad situation and how to stop it from happening.

  • Instruct your children not to eat any treats until they bring them home to be examined by you. This way you can check for any problem candy and get the pick of the best stuff!

  • Make sure your child carries a flashlight, glow stick or has reflective tape on their costume to make them more visible to cars.

  • Let them know that they should stay together as a group if going out to Trick or Treat without an adult.
