Happy Halloween!! It's one of the most exciting 

occasions all year for children and adults alike! 

With all of the tricks and treats in store, keep in 

mind that this can also be a hazardous time as 

well. Here is the Realty Edge Team's tips to keep 

you and your kids safe this Halloween.

Costume Tips:

  • Wear costumes that are bright and easily seen or use reflective tape to help increase your visibility.

  • Make sure that costumes and shoes fit well to prevent tripping.

  • Consider face-paint/makeup rather than masks that can limit or block eyesight.

  • If your child’s costume includes props such as swords, or knives, make sure they are not sharp or too long.

  • Bring flashlights with fresh batteries.

  • Avoid wearing decorative contact lenses, they can be damaging to eyes.

  • Teach Children to how to dial 9-1-1 if they have an emergency or get lost.

Trick-or-Treating Tips:

  • Ensure that a parent or responsible adult accompanies younger children on their neighborhood rounds.

  • If your older children are going on their own, go over the route they will take and establish their curfew.

  • Tell your children to stick together. They should only go to homes with their lights on, and NEVER go inside a home or car.

  • Carry a cellphone for quick communication.

  • Stick to well-lit streets and on the sidewalks.

  • Don’t cut across yards or use alleys.

  • Don’t assume the right away. Motorists don’t always see trick-or-treaters and just because one might stop, others may not.

Home Safety Tips:

  • Remove anything from the porch or front yard that someone could trip on such as garden hoses or lawn decorations.

  • Check the outdoor lights and replace ones that are burnt out so trick-or-treaters can see more clearly.

  • Wet leaves should be swept from sidewalks and steps.

  • Keep pets inside so they won’t be tempted to jump on or bite a trick-or-treater.

 We hope you have a fun and safe Halloween from the Realty Edge Team. Contact us at (507-722-1107) www.rochesterrealtyedge.com.
