  • Halloween Safety Tips

    bridgess in KDPS News on Oct 30, 2014
    Tagged in: News

    Kalamazoo, MI:  Kalamazoo Public Safety would like for everyone to have a fun and safe Halloween.  Please consider the following safety tips to keep our children safe this Hallaween:

    • Wear light-colored clothing that is short enough to prevent tripping.  It should also be reflective for others to easily see.

    • Make sure children can see well through masks, or use make-up.

    • Adults should accompany young children.

    • Go out in daylight and carry a flashlight for when it does get dark.

    • Stay within your neighborhood and only visit homes you know.

    • Only give and accept wrapped or packaged candy. Instruct children NOT to eat treats until they return home and parents have had a chance to inspect those treats.

    • Keep costumed children away from pets. The pet may not recognize the child and become frightened or vicious.

    • Avoid hard plastic or wood props such as daggers or swords. Substitute with foam rubber, which is soft and flexible.

    • Tell children to never enter a stranger’s home or vehicle for a treat.

    • Watch for traffic.  Have children look both ways before crossing the street.

    • Drive cautiously on Halloween - excited children could dart out in front of your vehicle.

    • Remove obstacles from lawns and steps to prevent children from tripping or being otherwise injured.

    • Think about alternatives to Trick-or-Treating, many organizations are hosting Halloween events.
