Halloween Safety: No Tricks, Just Treats

Everyone loves a good scare on Halloween, but not when it comes to child safety. There are several easy and effective behaviors that parents can share with kids to help reduce their risk of injury.

Do you remember how much fun it was to get dressed up as your favorite action hero, cartoon character or princess and go door-to door- for Halloween treats? Well, your children now get to experience that same joy. Just as your parents did for you, now it’s your turn to prevent Halloween accidents and injuries by supervising your children closely. 

Scary Fact: On average, children are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed on Halloween than on any other day of the year!

As you’re putting the finishing touches on your child’s costumes, be sure to add something so they will be seen by drivers. Kids can wear glowsticks or carry flashlights to make them easily seen by drivers.

This Infographic from Safe Kids Worldwide highlights some important safety tips to help remind your little ghouls, goblins, super heroes and fairy princesses to help stay safe this Halloween.
