Stay Out of the Emergency Room This Halloween

Tags:

Too many kids get hurt in car accidents; bike accidents; and walking accidents as they trick-or-treat on Halloween night. Thus, you can never be reminded too many times of how to avoid your little one from being hurt. Here are a few tips from the American Red Cross:

  • Walk, slither, and sneak on sidewalks, NOT in the street.
  • Look both ways before crossing the street to check for cars, trucks, and low-flying brooms.
  • Cross the street only at the corner.
  • Wear reflective tape on the costume or the candy bag.
  • Plan your route and share it with your family.
  • Carry a flashlight to light your way.
  • Accept your treats at the door and never go into a stranger’s house.
  • Have a grown-up inspect your treats before eating. Don’t eat candy if the package is already opened.

Halloween should be filled with surprise and enjoyment–not injury. Just a bit more precaution can save you a trip to the emergency room with your witch, goblin or superhero!

Have a safe Halloween!!
