5 Tips to Enjoy a Safe Halloween with Your Family

Halloween should be a time of safe family fun. However, it seems all too often that stories of vandalism, crime, or accidents make headlines the next day. With that in mind, here are some safety tips to follow that will ensure Halloween is safe and memorable.

Pick a Practical and Comfortable Costume

It is important to pick your costume wisely. Halloween night will likely be cold, so plan a way to incorporate a jacket. Also, remember to be careful with the costumes you pick for children. If they are trick-or-treating, make sure their costume is not obstructing their vision.

Go Out Early

Halloween is on a Sunday this year, which provides the opportunity to go trick-or-treating a little bit earlier. No matter what time you start, try and finish trick-or-treating by 8.:00 p.m.  The later the night goes, the more chances there are to run into trouble.

Going With Kids? Stay Together and Have an Adult Lead the Way

If you are going with a group of children, make sure to safely lead the way. Keep a close eye on everyone and make sure that nobody wanders off. Also, consider using flashlights so that the path and group remain visible to others.

Kids Going with Friends or Alone? Know Their Route

Before your kids head out, you should know exactly where they will be and the route they will take. If they are going with another parent, have their contact number just in case.

Make Sure Your House is Safe

If you are going out trick-or-treating, you leave your home vulnerable to vandalism and robbery. Robberies are common on Halloween, and it is essential to be protected. Therefore, ensure that your property is equipped with a security system. With the help of Scan-Tech security, you can keep your property safe and have a fun Halloween. Contact us today for a quote.
