Halloween Safety

Halloween is a holiday everyone loves. The kids love to dress up and of course, go trick-or-treating.  Here are some tips on being safe this Halloween.

                                  ♦ Beware of trees being cut down in the roads.
                                     Drive cautiously.
♦ Watch out for drunk drivers so if you’re walking, make sure to hold your kids close and keep a good look out.
♦ Do not connect more than three miniature light string together.  Also, be sure to check the rating on your extension cords and do not plug in more than the recommended wattage.  Cords should not be run under carpets or tacked-up with metal nails or staples.
♦ Choose costumes that are lighter in color and attach reflective materials to costumes.  Make sure each child has a flashlight to help them see and be seen.
♦ Never let your kids eat Halloween candy before you inspect it in the light at home.  Even if you know your neighbors, you should always check to safe and throw away open candy or anything that looks at all suspicious.
