Halloween and Trick-Or-Treating Safety Tips

For Immediate Release: 10/12/2022 11:08 am

WORCESTER – Halloween trick-or-treating will take place on Monday, Oct. 31. The recommended hours for this activity are 4 to 7:30 p.m.

All drivers are reminded that the presence of children and parents on roads and around homes requires additional caution.

To help make Halloween activities safer, whether you’re going door-to-door, driving, or passing out treats at home, keep these safety tips in mind:

  • Choose bright colors that make your child more visible in the dark.
  • Provide children with flashlights. Be sure they can see through masks/makeup.
  • Maintain clear escape routes by keeping exits clear of decorations.
  • Establish a pre-planned route and only visit houses that have porch lights on.
  • Be a safe pedestrian. Look both ways and use established crosswalks.
  • Inspect candy and treats before consumption.
  • Drive slow and stay alert in residential neighborhoods.
  • Walk in groups with a trusted adult. Children under 12 should be supervised.
  • Never accept rides from strangers or enter a stranger’s home.
