Halloween Safety Tip

Halloween is right around the corner and with that comes adorable costumes, and trick-or-treating for most families. It is important to remember some key things when taking your precious little ones trick-or-treating for some delicious candy! According to the Center for Disease Control & Prevention, the following acrostic is used to help you remember how to have a SAFE HALLOWEEN!

Alphabet letter S Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be short, soft, and flexible.
Alphabet letter A Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult.
Alphabet letter F Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you.
Alphabet letter E Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. Limit the amount of treats you eat.
Alphabet letter H Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you. Always WALK and don’t run from house to house.
Alphabet letter A Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible skin and eye irritation.
Alphabet letter L Look both ways before crossing the street. Use established crosswalks wherever possible.
Alphabet letter L Lower your risk for serious eye injury by not wearingdecorative contact lenses.

Some great tips, especially the one about lit candles. So many people use them as decoration this time of year, and it's easy to forget about a floating costume that might come into contact with flames.
