[ARCHIVED] Halloween Safety

Halloween Jacks.jpg

Halloween is just around the corner. It’s an evening for fun and fright, but it can also be an evening of risk if families don’t plan carefully to stay safe. Roseville Police offer tips for a safe Halloween adventure.

Basic tips include:

  • Wearing bright and reflective costumes that fit well and are short enough to prevent tripping.
  • Having a responsible adult accompany young children.
  • Using flashlights to help Trick-or-Treaters see.
  • Instructing children to cross streets at crosswalks only.
As children get older, they often want to go trick-or-treating without an adult. Review the rules:
  • Go trick-or-treating with a buddy – never alone.
  • Plan a route and let a responsible adult know where you are going. Stick to well-lit streets, and only visit homes that have an outside light on.
  • Carry a cell phone, flashlight and whistle. Use them to alert others of an uncomfortable or unsafe situation.
  • Accept treats at the door; never go into a home.
  • Watch for vehicles backing out of driveways and look both ways before crossing a street or alleyway.
Home Safety
  • Keep pathways clear of decorations or landscaping that could cause someone to trip.
  • Keep your pets safe. If they are frightened by ringing doorbells or strangers coming to the door, keep them behind closed doors during trick-or-treating hours.
  • Do not let pets eat candy. Chocolate can be deadly for pets, and they can choke on wrappers.
  • If driving, use extreme caution throughout the night. Slow down and help keep children safe.
