  • A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds.

  • Obtain flashlights with fresh batteries for all children and their escorts.

  • If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when they should return home.

  • Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat.

  • Because pedestrian injuries are the most common injuries to children on Halloween, remind Trick-or-Treaters:

    • Stay in a group and communicate where they will be going.

    • Remember reflective tape for costumes and trick-or-treat bags.

    • Carry a cell phone for quick communication.

    • Remain on well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk.

    • If no sidewalk is available, walk at the far edge of the roadway facing traffic.

    • Never cut across yards or use alleys.

    • Only cross the street as a group in established crosswalks (as recognized by local custom). Never cross between parked cars or out driveways.

    • Don't assume the right of way. Motorists may have trouble seeing Trick-or-Treaters. Just because one car stops, doesn't mean others will!

    • Law enforcement authorities should be notified immediately of any suspicious or unlawful activity.
