Halloween Safety Tips – Practicing Safe Habits for Halloween
Our Sacramento injury attorneys want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable Halloween season this year. Below are some safety tips to keep in mind as you plan your Halloween events.
Halloween Safety for Costumes
When you choose a Halloween costume for your child, you need to make sure the costume fits correctly. You do not want your child tripping over a costume. Also, make sure your child’s eyes are uncovered so he or she can see clearly. Because many masks obstruct clear views, consider using face paint instead of a mask.
For dark-colored costumes, you need to trim the costume in reflective tape or material to ensure motorists see your child. You can also use flashing LED lights as accessories and have your child carry a flashlight.
Pretend weapons may not be the best choice for Halloween costumes this year. The level of anxiety in some neighborhoods about weapons is higher than normal. If you use a toy sword or knife, make sure that it is soft with no sharp edges in case your child falls.
Halloween Safety for Trick-or-Treating
Do not let children go trick-or-treating without an adult. Also, it is usually safer to go out in groups than alone. Stay on sidewalks or as close the edge of the road as possible. Glow sticks and flashlights are a good idea to help children see where they are stepping in addition to making children more visible to motorists.
It is also a good idea to trick-or-treat in areas where you know the homeowners. If you are concerned, you can usually find numerous churches and other organizations that host alternative activities to trick-or-treating on Halloween.
Make sure that your children know they cannot have any candy or other items until you examine it carefully at home. Search through your child’s Halloween candy and dispose of any candy that is not wrapped, appears homemade (unless you know the person), or appears to be tampered with in some way.
