5 Tips on Staying Safe This Halloween

Halloween is a great time for kids (and parents) as they have the chance to dress up in their favourite character and go door to door to collect candy. However, it’s also important for children and parents to exercise caution.

The following are some safety tips to keep safe on Halloween:

Halloween Lights

Look for Halloween light strings that have tamper-resistant bulbs that can’t be removed easily, and remember that cords pose a strangulation hazard. All cords should be kept short and tight. Consider taking the excess that you might leave hanging and bind it up with a zip tie.

Stay Visible

It’s always a smart idea to take a flashlight and hang glowing lights around your child’s neck, some even attach reflectors to a child’s wagon. Make sure masks don’t cover the child’s eyes or obstruct in any way that they miss safety hazards such as moving vehicles.


Discard any items with poke holes or discoloration, that are manually sealed or unsealed, as well as baked goods.

Leave lights on even if you are not home

Don’t leave all your lights off, it alerts burglards that you are not home and encourages vandalism.

Stay within distance of any burning candles

Putting candles in a pumpkin are a tradition, however, they create a risk of fire. If you have any candles running, make sure you are in viewing distance to prevent any damage.
