Halloween Safety Tips

Oct 15, 2015 | Education

Halloween is such a fun time of the year. Charleston, SC gets to start experiencing the fall of the temperatures, beautiful days, various colored leaves, and a feeling of rest and fun. Halloween is the fall day to really kick off the fall/winter season in Charleston and we at Stingray Branding, would like to remind you of a few safety tips to keep you trick or treater safe this season.

Choosing Safe Houses

Remind children to avoid homes that do not have a porch light on or are not decorated for Halloween. A child should NEVER enter a house or apartment that they do not personally kow the occupants of. Check out www.intown.com and news stations for neighborhoods that are deemed “safe” and typically have a larger participation/turnout rate for halloween celebrations.


Ensure your children do not eat any treats before an adult has carefully examined them.


Costume Designs

Make sure your child’s costume is bright enough or has reflective elements so they can be seen by motorists. Give them a flashlight and tell them to keep it on at all times when walking around. Make sure hats, scarfs, and other materials that can be secured are tight.

Make sure they can see out of all masks and that the mask and costume does not overheat them.

Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be of a flexible material.

Flame Resistant Costumes

Make sure your costumes are flame resistent. Check your child’s costume for loose material, heat sensitive material, or items that could cause your child to trip. Remind them to avoid open flames (candles, bonfires, etc) when walking around.

Pedestrian Safety

Remind children to always WALK, never run and to stay within eyesight of an adult at all times.
