… in Connecticut and throughout the country. We all should take a moment to think about precautions to make this a safe and fun night for our kids and grownups alike.

  • If you’re driving watch for children walking on the street. Be especially careful around parked cars, kids could come out between cars.
  • Give your kids flashlights with fresh batteries or at least glow sticks so that they can be seen.
  • Use brightly colored costumes for your kids if possible. If your child has a dark colored costume put reflective tape strips on the back and shoes.
  • Plan to take kids to familiar neighborhoods.
  • Make sure your kids know your cell phone number so they can call you in case you get separated. Or you might even loan them a mobile phone so you can be easily reached.
  • Don’t let little kids go out trick or treating alone, always accompany them. Older kids should go out in groups and stay together.
  • Teach your kids not to eat any candy or other treats until they come back home and you had a chance to check out the loot.
  • Avoid homemade treats unless you know the person who made them well.

Halloween is one of the most exciting time for kids, Following these simple tips will help keep everyone safe and make it a fun holiday.
