Halloween Safety Tips

With all the excitement that Halloween brings, children may forget many of the safety rules you have taught them.  Therefore, it is important to carve out some time before your children head out the door on Halloween to remind them of the safety rules that you expect them to follow. Here are a few safety tips to go over with your kids before they head out:

  • Never get into strangers’ cars no matter what the person says.
  • If your child is old enough to go out on Halloween with friends, make sure that he/she has a pre-programmed cell phone with all-important numbers.
  • Children and adults are reminded to put electronic devices down, keep their head up and walk, don’t run, across the street.
  • If your older children are going out without an adult, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when you want them home.
  • Tell your child to only go to homes with an outside light on, and never enter a home or car for a treat.
  • When crossing the street remind your child not to assume drivers will stop. Motorists may have trouble seeing trick-or-treaters.  Just because one car stops does not mean others will.
  • Tell your child not to eat any of their treats until you have checked them.
  • Law enforcement should be notified immediately of any suspicious or unlawful activity.

Motorists need to take extra precautions when driving on Halloween night.  Here are a few tips to remember:

  • Do not use a cell phone or other electronic device. Even with hands-free devices, a driver’s attention is not totally focused on driving when talking on the phone. Avoid distraction by waiting until you are parked to call, text, or surf.
  • Drive below the posted speed limit in residential areas during trick-or-treating hours. Watch for children darting into the street.  Kids can cross the street anywhere, and most young pedestrian deaths happen at spots other than intersections.
  • Do not pass other vehicles that have stopped in the roadway. Children could be crossing the street, or parents may be dropping off children.
  • Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully.
  • At twilight and later in the evening, watch for children in dark clothing.
  • Drive slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic, and turn on your headlights earlier in the day to spot children from greater distances.

 

halloween fire safety

LOOK. LISTEN. LEARN. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere.

escape plan

Every year, the majority of fire deaths in North America happen at home. Today’s home fires burn faster than ever. In a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds. It is important that you and your family take the time to prepare so that should a fire happen in your home, you can get out safely.  

Your family can start by making sure you have a home fire escape plan:
• Home fire escape planning and drills are an essential part of fire safety. A home fire escape plan needs to be developed and practiced before a fire strikes.
• A home escape plan should include the following:
   o Two exits from every room in the home – usually a door and a window
   o Properly installed and working smoke alarms
   o A meeting place outside, in front of the home, where everyone will meet after
they exit
   o A call to 9-1-1 or the local emergency number from a cell phone or a neighbor’s phone.
