Halloween is approaching fast, and the trick-or-treating will be underway before you know it! Every parent shutterstock_921171wants to ensure that their child’s Halloween is a fun one, but it is also important to be sure it is a safe one as well. Here are some tips to help keep you and the kiddos safe this Halloween.
Supervision is Key
It is important for a parent or guardian to always be present with young children while trick-or-treating. This will ensure their safety.
Use Batteries
Be sure to use battery powered lights in your spooky decorations, since candles can cause fires. Also check the labels of costumes, accessories, and wigs to be sure they are fire-resistant.
Be Prepared
Just because it is Halloween doesn’t mean that your house can’t be broken in to. Be sure to arm your security system before leaving the house, no matter how long you’ll be gone. It can take as little as 60 seconds for a burglar to break into your home.
Be Smart
Be smart, and be sure to talk to your children about trick-or-treating safety. Never enter the home of a stranger or a car to obtain a Halloween treat.
These tips can help keep you and your family safe this Halloween. All of us at Orlando Plastic Surgery Associates wish everyone a happy and safe Halloween!
