Halloween Safety Tips

Posted: Updated:

Halloween can be a spooky fun night filled with costumes and candy, but it is important to keep a few safety tips in mind when you're out and about collecting all that candy.

Tip number one is stay with small kids while out trick or treating. Sgt. Bryan Slavik of the Great Falls Police Department said this is the most important Halloween rule.

"If you have small children they have to have a parent or a guardian with them. That's the number one rule. If there is going to a problem with someone bothering someone or harassing someone. If you are with a parent it very rarely happens," Slavik said. 

Tip number two is always check your candy before eating it.

Slavik adds, "For children that are going trick or treating its always important to check their goodies. Always empty the bag completely before they have had a chance to eat anything and don't let them eat anything while they are out trick or treating. Make sure the wrappers are intact those type of things. If you find anything unwrapped throw it out."

Tip number three is to avoid stranger's neighborhoods.

"Trick or treat in places you know and you are comfortable with," said Slavik.

Tip number four is to be safe on the roads. Those out trick or treating should be cautious of cars on the road, and drivers should also be more aware of their surroundings.

"Halloween brings out adults that like to party. Make sure you use a designated driver," Slavik warns.

These tips will make sure your only Halloween frights will come from some awesome costumes.
