Halloween Safetyby Martha Scully • October 30, 2014
If you expect trick-or-treaters at your house, make sure they are safe to approach your property. Have a cleared walkway that is well-lit to your door, and don't leave lit pumpkins unattended.
You may even want to get a flame-less candle or glow-stick for inside your pumpkin. Keep pets inside, as they can be unpredictable when afraid or excited.
If you are driving your youngsters around, try to stay under the speed limit and watch out for children crossing the road without warning. Avoid driving through residential areas. If possible, park somewhere close by and walk to your destination.
Be sure to inspect the candy your children bring home before they consume it. Throw out anything ripped, opened, or homemade (if you do not know who it came from).
Have a safe and happy Halloween, and enjoy your night!
