Safety tip: Stay safe this Halloween (October 24, 2018 Hotline)

Safety tip: Stay safe this Halloween

New Mexico State University would like to share a few safety tips to help make Halloween safe and fun this year.

  • Children should never talk to strangers or venture too far from your parents.
  • Parents should take a look at your children’s candy before they eat it to make sure none of it has been tampered with.
  • Make sure costumes or decorations do not come in contact with open flames, such as candles in jack-o’-lanterns. Use battery-operated candles or glow-sticks in jack-o’-lanterns.
  • Come up with a safe meeting place to meet at in case you and your group get separated from each other.
  • Parents talk with your children about who they should talk to if they get lost, such as police officers or another parent with children.
  • Look both ways before you cross the road and use crosswalks.
  • Make yourself visible by carrying a flashlight, glow stick or wear something reflective.
  • Motorists should be on the lookout for more pedestrians, especially small children and primarily on residential streets
