State Police Offer Halloween Safety Tips

| October 31, 2012

The following Halloween Safety Tips were provided by the Pennsylvania State Police.

Halloween Safety Tips:

– Parents should accompany children on their rounds. If a parent isn’t available, someone the parents trust should go with the children.

– Trick-or-treat only during times established by the local municipality, and visit only those homes with the porch light on.

– Children should walk on the sidewalk, not the road, when possible. They should walk facing oncoming traffic, and cross streets only at crosswalks, not between cars.

– Children should avoid wearing masks that obstruct their vision.

– Costumes should be flame retardant and fit properly.

– Children should wear reflective clothing or patches on their costumes. Carrying a flashlight is a good idea.

– Parents should check treats before they are eaten.

– Parents should report any suspicious activity to local police.
