There will be a lot of kids Trick or Treating tomorrow night on the Gulf Coast. Here are some great ideas that can help keep them safe!
Halloween is tomorrow and if you’ve got little trick-or-treaters ready to celebrate, the National Safety Council wants parents to remember some important safety tips to ensure the festivities go off without a hitch.
Here are the last minute safety tips for everyone celebrating:
- Double check that costumes are fire resistant: With lots of jack-o-lanterns lit up with candles and costumes that are sometimes ill fitting, it’s important to make sure the material won’t catch fire.
- Use reflective tape: Kids in dark costumes are really hard to see for night drivers. Make sure sneakers and bags have reflective tape on them so kids can be seen!
- Have a route and check-in plan: Kids old enough to explore on their own should have a route agreed upon by parents and should check in with designated adults at particular times.
- Motorists should be on high alert: If you can, avoid driving around neighborhoods during peak trick-or-treating times. If you can't, be sure to drive slowly and be extra careful backing out of driveways (WHAS11)
