Preparations for Halloween start even before the month begins. Safety is always the number one concern this time of year. Let us go over a few tips to keep our children safe.
-Costumes, wigs, should be fire resistant, as well as proper fitting to avoid tripping.
-Face painting may be a better option than a mask. (non-toxic) Masks can obscure the vision.
-Accessories should never have sharp or pointed ends.
-Reflective tape should be attached to all costumes including carrying bags.
-Putting a phone number and first name to be reached IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY on or inside a costume would be beneficial.
-All children should be supervised by parents or an adult they trust.
-Flash lights and charged phones should be a part of the to do list.
-Please instruct children to never dart or run across the street. Look BOTH WAYS and WATCH FOR ALL CARS, wait safely until a car passes. Cross at cross walks and NOT in the middle of the block. Watch for all cars pulling in and out of driveways.
-Stay away from lit candles.
-Remind children to NEVER EAT any candy until it is checked by a trusted adult.
-Anything suspicious, REMEMBER TO CALL 911
_AND MOST OF ALL DO NOT TALK TO STRANGERS!
