While trick-or-treating:

  • Go only to well-lit houses
  • Do not enter a home unless accompanied by your parent
  • Do not talk to strangers along the way
  • Walk on the sidewalks, not in the street
  • Travel in small groups
  • Be accompanied by an adult
  • Bring treats home before eating them so your parents can inspect them
  • Plan your route and share it with your parents
  • Use flashlights
  • Wear bright, reflective and flame-retardant clothing

 

Adults should:

  • Make certain that hooded costumes or masks do not block vision
  • Accompany children under the age of 12
  • Instruct children to travel along a pre-established route and establish a return time
  • Restrict trick-or-treating to homes with porch lights
  • Instruct children never to enter a stranger's home unaccompanied
  • Tell kids to bring home candy before eating it, and inspect all treats; if in doubt, throw it out!
  • Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape
  • Prepare your home for trick-or-treaters
