The following safety tips will help make your Halloween Holiday safe and fun:


  •   Walk, don’t run from house to house.


  •   Stay on sidewalks.
  •   Stop and look both ways before crossing the street.


  •   Cross the street at intersections, not between parked cars.


  •   Stay in familiar neighborhoods.


  •   Carry a flashlight and wear bright clothing.


  •   Make sure costumes do not drag on the ground.


  •   Avoid wearing masks while walking from house to house.


  •   Safer to be in groups when walking and trick or treating.


  •   Approach only houses that have lights on.


  •   Wear clothing with reflective markings or tape.


  •   Wear costumes that don’t restrict your sight.


  •  Wait to eat candy after you get home.


  •   Parents inspect all candy after returning home. Any candy opened should not be eaten.


  •   Carry a cellular phone and immediately report any suspicious activity to police.

  If you are out driving on Halloween, please slow down and use extra caution during trick-or-treat hours!

Good tips.  It's a dangerous world out there and we need to take extra steps to keep the kids safe when they're out there in the dark.

Hi Jeanean - Yes this is right around the corner - not decorating this year ( other than the fall wreath on the door and the scarcrow in the front landsape bed :) empty nesters for the 1st time so no girls at home to carve pumpkins :(

we will enjoy the little ones who come to trick or treat though!

appreciate you stopping by
