Halloween Tips from SafetySmart Lilburn

It's Halloween. Here are tips from the Lilburn community on staying safe.

Halloween is a fun and spooky day for kids. Here are some tips to help make it safe for you and your family.

  • When buying or making a costume make sure that the eyeholes are big enough to see out of and that there is no long and billowing material that could brush against a flame and ignite or trip the wearer.
  • When trick-or-treating use a flashlight, glow stick or wear reflective material to alert cars of your presence.
  • Be sure to check candy for rips/tears in the packaging or other hazards before giving it to kids to eat.
  • When carving pumpkins be sure to keep sharp objects away from young children.
  • It’s safer to use a flashlight or a glow stick rather than a candle in jack-o-lanterns to prevent unnecessary fires.
  • When driving, be sure to pay careful attention to small children darting into the street so you can avoid hitting them.

Follow these tips to have a fun and safe night of fright.
