This Halloween, we hope you’ll encourage your children to practice the above safe trick-or-treating habits and that you too will practice safe habits of your own. As a parent, you can help alleviate the risk of Halloween injuries by:

  1. Insisting on tagging along during trick-or-treating no matter how old your children are.
  2. Beginning trick-or-treating as early as possible and avoiding late night activity.
  3. Encouraging sidewalk and crosswalk use wherever possible and avoiding houses that are dimly or not well lit.
  4. Inspecting candy and throwing away anything received that’s unwrapped or appears to have been tampered with. The DEA is warning parents that deadly rainbow-colored [fentanyl] pills may be marketed to children after [a] recent seizure in Connecticut found the drugs stashed in Skittles and Nerds packaging.
  5. Finally, you too should use your “Spidey Senses” and remove yourself and your children from any situation that feels unsafe.

We hope you have a wonderful, fun, and safe Halloween!
