Trick-or-treating safety tips

Stay with a group.

It goes without saying that parents should accompany younger children when trick-or-treating, but even older kids and teens should stay in larger groups and avoid splitting up while out and about at night.

Plan a route for your older kids.

If your older kids are heading out in a group of friends without parental supervision, make sure they know and agree to a specified route that you’re comfortable with them staying on.

Carry a flashlight and wear reflective gear.

Don’t blend in with the darkness, as most streets are not closed to traffic during trick-or-treating hours. Make sure drivers can easily see you and your little ones.

Only stop at houses with a porch light on.

Well-lit homes are usually a sign that the homeowners are participating in trick-or-treating. Don’t walk up to a dark house, and teach children to never get into a car for candy.

Inspect candy.

Before letting your children dive into their bags of candy, check individual pieces for sharp objects or evidence that they might have been opened or tampered with.
