Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween Safety Tips

Next to Christmas, Halloween is probably the most favorite holiday for kids, and as mentioned, your friends at Apollo! With candy, costumes, and spooky decorations, there’s not a lot you can do to keep your kids calm! But trick-or-treating can be a little scary for parents with all the ghosts and goblins out on the streets — you never know what could be lurking around the corner. Here are a few tips to keep your kids safe and to let you relax and enjoy it all:

Choose costumes that:

• are flame-resistant
• have masks that don’t block their vision
• aren’t too long (so they don’t trip and fall)
• have props such as swords that are made of soft materials
• have something reflective on them (so drivers can see them crossing the street)

While Trick or Treating make sure to:

• walk only on the sidewalks
• obey traffic signals
• only walk on well-lit streets
• bring a flashlight
• save all the treats to eat at home

Halloween is a fun and exciting time – enjoy it. It only comes once a year! Your friends here at Apollo Insurance Services wish you a Safe & Happy Halloween!
