Halloween Safety Tips

Know the RULES:

  • NEVER ever go Trick-or-Treating alone! Make sure you go with a TRUSTED ADULT. A trusted adult is a person that your parents or guardians have come to rely on and someone who you and your parents feel comfortable with.
  • OLDER children should never go Trick or Treating alone! Always Trick or Treat with a FRIEND or a GROUP of FRIENDS. You are much safer when you are with others.
  • Younger children should always have a parent or a trusted adult go with them to the door of every home.
  • When Trick or Treating, younger and older children should NEVER enter anyone’s home, unless their parents have given prior permission.
  • It is much safer to only go Trick or Treating in familiar neighborhoods. Be sure to only approach homes that are well-lit both on the inside and on the outside.
  • Wear a highly-visible or reflective costume and carry a flashlight when Trick or Treating at night.
  • Stay on sidewalks and walkways.
  • Stay in well-lit areas, NEVER take short-cuts, and never go to isolated areas.
  • WALK! Do not run in your costume because you might trip and injure yourself.
  • NEVER approach a stranger’s vehicle, even if the person inside is offering you candy or gifts.
  • NEVER get in a stranger’s vehicle or leave with a stranger!
  • The Rule is: NEVER go anywhere with a stranger or take anything from a stranger! SAY NO, Get Away Quick, and Tell someone!
  • Be aware of any people who are acting strange or suspicious. REPORT them to you your parents or the police right away.
  • If someone tries to grab you or a friend, yell loudly “HELP, this person is not my parent, STRANGER!” While you are yelling, you can kick, hit, pull-away, and run! Make every effort to escape and draw attention to the situation.
  • Older children might consider carrying a cell phone in case of emergency.
  • DON’T eat any candy until you get home, and be sure that your parents check your candy before you do eat it.
  • Consider attending parties at home, in school, or in community centers as a safe alternative to Trick or Treating.


Have a safe and fun Halloween!
