3 Easy Halloween Safety Tips

Trick or Treat? Halloween is here again. As you and your families step out in costume this year, we want to help you limit those tricky surprises to spooky ghouls and scary witches. Check out the following three safety tips to ensure this holiday remains a treat.

When we asked parents about their most pressing Halloween safety concerns, many voiced fears about poison candy and child abductions while forgetting about one major safety offender: Cars.

As you and your children venture out for sweet treats, keep in mind that year after year, Halloween remains at the near-top of the list for pedestrian injuries and fatalities. [1]

Being aware of potential danger is critical in preventing a vehicle accident. Although traffic laws clearly state that cars must yield to pedestrians, it's important for you and your children to understand that laws like these can't prevent an accident from occurring.







Caution & Visibility

  • Use sidewalks
  • Use designated crosswalks
  • Look both ways before crossing
  • Wear reflective costumes
  • Carry glow sticks or flashlights


If you're in the driver's seat this Halloween, exercise additional caution when driving through neighborhoods.

  • Drive under the speed limit
  • Avoid distractions such as phones


If your children are old enough to trick or treat alone, you'll want to arm them with additional safety ammo. Kids trick or treating alone should carry a phone, know where they live and understand the dangers of separating themselves from the group.


If your children are separated from you or their group of peers accidentally, they should be comfortable using a backup plan to reunite, such as heading back home or to a well-lit public location.





Staying in Contact

  • Have a phone
  • Have a plan


The best part of Halloween is coming home, unloading the candy, counting the pieces and, of course,
indulging. But nothing ruins a fun time more quickly than a dangerous reaction caused by food allergies.

Food Safety

  • Educate allergic children
  • Practice identifying foods with known allergens
  • Help kids separate candy



Whether you’re dressing up with the kids or dishing out candy to the neighbors this year, SOS Survival Products wishes you a safe and happy Halloween!
