Halloween Safety Tips

By Firefighter Michael Centrone
October 25, 2020

With Halloween quickly approaching, there are some safety tips we would like to remind our residents of. These safety tips were divided into Low, Moderate, and High risk activity's.

Low Risk

Some activities that fall under the lower-risk category are carving or decorating pumpkins with your household or outside at a safe distance with neighbors or friends. Virtual costume contests, movie nights with people you live with or a scavenger hunt trick-or-treat search with household members are also in the low-risk category.

Moderate Risk

Moderate risk activities include one-way trick or treating with goodie bags ready to go. Remember if you are preparing the goodie bags, wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds before and after preparing the bags. Visiting pumpkin patches or orchards where people use hand sanitizer before touching pumpkins or apples, wearing masks is encouraged or enforced and people are able to maintain social distancing is also in the moderate category

High Risk

High-risk activities are normal trick-or-treating where children go door-to-door, going on hayrides or tractor rides with people who are not in your household or activities where alcohol or drugs are available, which can cloud judgment and increase risky behaviors. If you are attending a trunk or treat event reduce contact on candy by either having the candy spread out on a table, prepacked, or in a bowl.

Additional Safety Tips

Cross streets only at a crosswalk or corner.
-Use sidewalks or paths. Keep out of the streets if possible. If not, walk facing traffic and as far left as possible.
-Kids 12 and under should have adults with them at all times.
-Stick with direct and familiar routes.
-Carry flashlights or glow sticks​ to stay visible to traffic.
-Costumes and bags should be light-colored or have reflective tape or stickers for increased visibility.
-Make sure costumes fit well and don't impede movement or vision. Use face paint instead of masks for better vision.
-Be aware that many common substances can be potentially hazardous. Watch for reactions and call Poison Control if you see a problem.
-Wear a mask
