Halloween is almost here! Scary, right? We’re all very excited. But before you push your kids (or grandkids) out the door to trick-or-treat, or to attend a Halloween party, remember to think about Halloween safety first! Let’s fill the spookiest day of the year with fake scares, not real ones, throughout Allegheny County.
Send your kids with a flashlight
Of course, you would never tell your kids to go down streets without adequate lighting, but on the off chance they don’t stick with the planned trick-or-treating route, it’s best they be able to find their way back with an additional light source.
Give your kid a phone for Halloween night
You know what’s spooky? Not being able to contact your kids. We assume nothing will go wrong, but pushing a phone into your kids pocket with your number on speed dial should give everyone peace of mind as they wander the neighborhood.
Make sure they have emergency contact information
Perhaps you have your own “adult” party to go to and won’t be readily available in case of an emergency, or you just want your child to have options. A piece of paper, or a note on the phone you gave them with emergency contacts and info, will be a lifesaver if something does happen.
Making sure our kids have lots of laughs and plenty of fake spooks this weekend is a time-honored tradition. But plan ahead with these few tips. You wouldn’t want Halloween to turn into a night your kids want to forget.
