Intro HALLOWEEN
SAFETY TIPS
Go Bright Add some light-coloured elements to your costume to
make you more visible. Even better, use reflective
tape/materials to help make sure you are seen.
GO BRIGHT!
See it all Use scary makeup/face paint instead of a mask
so you can see properly.
SEE IT ALL!
Test Walk Walk around your house in your costume before you go out.
Make sure there are no hems dragging or pieces trailing that
can trip you.

Wear comfy (warm!) shoes and mittens if it’s cold.
TEST THAT WALK!
Bring it Carry a flashlight and wear a watch
so you know when it’s time to head for home.
BRING IT
LOCATION Stay in familiar neighborhoods
and on well-lit streets.
Walk on the sidewalk
(not on the grass),
cross at the crosswalk only,
and look both ways before
crossing the street.
LOCATION,

LOCATION
Know Your Route Have a planned route and travel in groups,
accompanied by an adult or an older sibling.
KNOW YOUR ROUTE
Pets Stay away from pets you don’t know
unless the owner is around and
can help you approach the animal safely.
GRRR...
FIRST! Go Trick-or-Treating early in the evening
(that’s when all the best candy is out!)
FIRST!
Skip em Trick or Treat only at houses that
have their outside lights on.
SKIP 'EM
DO NOT ENTER Don’t go inside a stranger’s house.
Instead, wait outside the door for treats.
DO NOT ENTER
RESIST THE URGE Save all treats until you get home so a parent
or older sibling can check over all the treats
to keep you safe. This is especially important
if you have allergies.
RESIST THE URGE
HELP If you see someone in trouble, call for help.
Get an adult or older sibling to call 9-1-1.
HELP!
