Safety Tips for Trick-or-Treaters:

HalloweenSafety

Excitement is in the air and ghosts, ghouls, monsters and princesses will be out in mass on Oct. 31 from 5 – 8 p.m.  Accidents and mishaps increase normally during this event, so to prevent many of these accidents, use common sense and be aware of potential hazards and take precautions to mitigate them.

Halloween Costume Safety

* Wear flame retardant costumes.

* Hem your costumes so you don’t trip and fall.

* Apply reflective tape to your Halloween costumes.

* Avoid cumbersome masks. Use make-up instead so that sight and hearing is not impeded

* Wear comfortable, practical shoes.

* Keep your costume and wig away from candles.

* Don’t carry fake swords, guns, knives or similar accessories that look authentic. Make sure they’re flexible and cannot harm anyone.

Trick-or-Treating Tips

* Plan your route ahead of time.

* If driving, pay special attention to kids running in-between or behind vehicles.

* Don’t drive distracted, by trying to watch your kids and follow them.  Pull off to a safe place and monitor your kids as they go from house to house.

* Trick or treat in familiar neighborhoods.

* Carry a flashlight with fresh batteries after dark.

* Always trick or treat in groups, accompanied by an adult.

* Stay on the sidewalks and out of the streets. Cross only at intersections and designated crosswalks.

* Walk, don’t run.

* Don’t trample through flower beds and gardens.

* Don’t enter any houses unless you know the people.

* Don’t approach unfamiliar pets or animals.

* Don’t cut across yards and stay out of backyards.

* Always watch for cars backing up or turning.

* Never accept rides from strangers.

* Respect other people and their property.

* Be polite and say “thank you.”

* Don’t eat any candy until it’s inspected for tampering under bright lights.

* Avoid candy that has loose wrappings, is unwrapped, has puncture holes, or is homemade.

* Report any suspicious or criminal activity to Security Forces at 520 228-5149 or call 911.

Halloween Party Tip

Using common sense can make a party a great one and avoid anything that may ruin it. For adult parties, keep an eye on the drinking and don’t let it get out of hand. Take the keys away from anyone that may be driving. Have at least one person stay sober and offer to drive those people home who may be too intoxicated to drive.  If all else fails contact AADD.

Have a fun filled Halloween and remember to be safe!
