Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween Safety Tips - Aptos Fire

Halloween is CREEPING up on us! Aptos/La Selva Fire Protection District wishes everyone a safe and happy Halloween experience. Take a minute to read these 3 tips to make sure you and your family stay safe while trick-or-treating.

  1. SAFETY IN NUMBERS:
    Join kids under the age of 12 for trick-or-treating. If kids are mature enough to be out without supervision, tell them to stick to familiar areas that are well-lit and to trick-or-treat in groups.
  2. SEE AND BE SEEN:
    If you plan to be on the road during trick-or-treat hours, watch for children walking on roadways, medians, and curbs. Be sure to enter and exit driveways carefully. Trick-or-treaters should also wear reflective or colorful costumes. Glow sticks and flashlights also make it easier for drivers to see you. Choose light-colored costumes. Dark costumes make it very difficult to see children after the sun goes down. Put electronic devices down, keep heads up, and walk (don’t run) when crossing streets. Teach children to always make eye contact with drivers and be sure they stop before stepping into the street.
  3. WHEN IN DOUBT THROW IT OUT:
    Avoid candy that has loose wrappings, is completely unwrapped, has puncture holes, or is homemade and not factory-wrapped. Small children should not be allowed hard candy, which could be a choking hazard.
