Being safe on Halloween!

If you’re planning on heading out trick or treating this year, or perhaps your children are, there’s a few things you should do to stay safe:

  • Make sure a responsible adult or guardian goes with you
  • Plan your route before you leave the house and make sure someone else knows where you are going
  • Carry a torch and wear reflective or light-coloured clothing so you can be seen
  • Stay close to home and if possible only visit the houses of people you know
  • NEVER enter a stranger’s home
  • Stay on pavements and check carefully before crossing a road.
  • Throw away any treats or sweets that have been opened or unwrapped
  • If you are wearing a mask, make sure that you can see clearly out of it
  • Make sure your costume is warm as temperatures can drop to 6’C.

There can also be dangers for teens and adults. Whilst Halloween parties are a lot of fun, Its still important to stay safe and here’s why

  • Someone under a mask might not be who you think they are.
  • Say with friends so no one gets lost
  • Don’t put your drink down, this is an easy target for people looking to spike drinks.
  • Eat well before you go out, especially if you’re planning on drinking alcohol
  • Trust your own judgement. Don’t let peer pressure sway you into doing anything you don’t want to do, It’s okay to say no.
  • Know where you’re going and how you’re getting there.

Have fun and stay safe this Halloween!
