October is Crime Prevention month so Halloween safety is very a pertinent topic. Growing up, the number one rule for trick-or-treating was do not eat any candy until you’re home. This way mom or dad could check out the treats to make sure everything was safe. While this is still a very important rule there are other safety concerns to think about. Here’s a list of the CDC’s best safety tips to follow this Halloween:

  • Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be short, soft, and flexible
  • Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult
  • Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you
  • Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you. Always WALK and don’t run from house to house
  • Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible skin and eye irritation
  • Look both ways before crossing the street. Use established crosswalks wherever possible
  • Lower your risk for serious eye injury by not wearing decorative contact lenses
  • Only walk on sidewalks whenever possible, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe
  • Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls
  • Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers
  • Enter homes only if you’re with a trusted adult. Only visit well-lit houses. Don’t stop at dark houses. Never accept rides from strangers
  • Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flame-resistant costumes

So whether you’re perfecting your goblin or a ghoul costume this Halloween season, always make time to practice safety. LifeShield will keep your home secure for a sound night’s sleep after all the spooky fun has been had.
