This will be the first year that Governor Lombardo and the First Lady will be in D.C. to celebrate Halloween, and the West Side has already begun decking out its spookiest decorations in preparation for the citywide event.
As Halloween approaches, parents and guardians are gearing up for costumes, candy and creativity. Although it’s a time for family fun, it’s also important to prioritize safety to ensure a magical and safe celebration for everyone.
Community Ambulance has some basic Halloween safety tips to help parents and guardians navigate the festivities responsibly.
Fashion Safety: This Halloween, prioritize the safety of your little ghouls and goblins. Choose costumes that fit well, are flame resistant, and are easy to spot in the dark. Add reflective tape to costumes and handle bags to increase visibility. Don’t forget to test makeup and masks to avoid allergic surprises.
Supervising trick-or-treating: Watch your kids as they embark on their scary adventure. Young children should always be accompanied while trick-or-treating. Older children traveling alone must stay together and follow a pre-determined route, with a set curfew upon their return.
Road safety: Ensure a safe trip during the night. Remind your little monsters to stay on sidewalks and use crosswalks when crossing streets. For added visibility, ask them to carry a flashlight or glow stick, as drivers may have trouble spotting small pedestrians.
Candy check: Before you indulge in their sweet spoils, check out your child’s Halloween candy. Discard any unwrapped or suspicious items. Keep a close eye on potential allergens, and make sure your child knows to seek help if they experience any adverse reactions.
Home Decor Safety: Make your home ready for Halloween without worries. Keep decorations off walkways and make sure they are well lit to prevent tripping hazards. Instead of real candles in lanterns, choose the safer option of battery-operated lights to maintain the spooky atmosphere without the risk of fire.
Pumpkin carving: Pumpkin carving can be a scary family activity, but it comes with risks. Children should never handle sharp objects without adult supervision. Consider safer alternatives like pumpkin decorators or stickers to avoid any Halloween mishaps.
Pet Safety: Don’t forget your furry friends during Halloween excitement. Loud noises and unfamiliar fashions can stress pets. To avoid accidents or escapes, keep them in a quiet, safe place away from celebrations. Their comfort and safety are essential during this scary season.
