Halloween

Halloween is a lot of fun. But to keep having fun, it’s important to be safe. When you’re out trick-or-treating, make sure you follow these rules:

  • Always trick-or-treat with an adult. Never trick-or-treat alone.
  • Carry a flashlight and a bright-colored trick-or-treat bag.
  • Be very careful when crossing streets. (See Street Safety.)
  • Walk on sidewalks, not in yards.
  • Don’t run. Trick-or-treat in neighborhoods you know at homes of people you know.
  • Do not eat any treats until you get home and have them checked by an adult.
  • Never eat any candy that has loose or open wrappers.
  • Wash all fruit and cut it into pieces to check it before eating.
  • Never trust anyone you don’t know or recognize.
