  3. 3. USAACE Family Weekly Update Page 3Trick or Treat Safety – www.halloween-safety.comTrick or Treating should be one of the great adventures of Halloween for kids! They can get dressed in scary costumes and godoor to door, begging "Tricks or Treats!" from neighbors or at the local mall. Lots of small towns have a Halloween Safe Nightat the community center or school so kids can Trick-or-Treat safely but going door to door is the stuff of childhood memories! Itshould be a fun time, without trouble and pain, so following some easy tips can keep your child safe every Halloween. Children should always go out trick or treating accompanied by a responsible adult. Make sure and stick to the curfew times and stick to subdivisions and areas with a lot of homes so your kids can get in as much trick or treating as possible in a few hours time. Plan a safe route so parents know where their older kids will be at all times. Set a time for their return home. Make sure that your child is old enough and responsible enough to go out by themselves. Make sure that they have a cell phone. Instruct your children not to eat any treats until they bring them home to be examined by you. This way you can check for any problem candy and get the pick of the best stuff! Instruct your child to never go into the home of a stranger or get into their car. Explain why this is not a god idea and what to do if someone approaches them and tries to talk to them. Make sure your child carries a flashlight, glow stick or has reflective tape on their costume to make them more visible to cars. Let them know that they should stay together as a group if going out to Trick or Treat without an adult. Visit Sparky’s Club
