Halloween Safety Tips
  • Brought to you by The DEP Training Section

Halloween History
  • Halloween was originally a Celtic celebration to
    welcome in the winter season.
  • During this time, the Celts would open up their
    burial mounds allowing the spirits of their dead
    to walk through the village during the
    celebration.

Halloween History
  • These wandering spirits would either bring safety
    to the villagers during the winter (Treat) or
    they would usher in cold, hard times (Trick).

4
Modern Halloween
  • Now that Halloween has lost some if its more
    sinister connotations, it has become an event
    based on fun and fantasy for adults and
    children alike.

5
Modern Halloween
  • The marketplace sees Halloween as mainly a sales
    event preparation an event that prepares
    retailers and consumers for the major holidays to
    follow Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and
    Valentines Day.

  • to dress like Batman
  • and eat as much candy
  • as you can in 24 hours!

Treats
  • Do not eat anything you receive while
    Trick-or-Treating until it is checked by an adult
  • Food may be contaminated
  • Allergies
  • Candy Checks
  • Carefully check all candy received as soon as the
    Trick-or-Treaters arrive home
  • Remove all tampered, old, and funny looking
    candy
  • Hospitals and Police Stations will check candy
    for FREE

    Trick-or-Treating

Costume Materials
  • FLAME RESISTANT MATERIALS!!
  • 2.99 Costumes NO!!
  • As a general rule, the cheaper the costume the
    less flame resistant it will be.
  • Rayon and Synthetic Costumes

11
Costume Design
  • Trim costumes with reflective tape
  • Carry flashlights (glow sticks, flaming skulls,
    light sabers, etc.)
  • Costumes should be short enough to prevent
    children from tripping and falling
  • Wear well-fitting, sturdy shoes

12
Costume Design
  • Masks should fit!
  • Using face paint or make-up whenever possible is
    a great alternative
  • Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories
    should be of soft and flexible material

13
Houses to Trick-or-Treat
  • An ADULT should always accompany children
  • Dont talk to strangers
  • Children should go only to homes where the
    residents are known
  • Only visit houses with outside lights ON
  • Never, ever go inside to collect candy

14
Welcoming Trick-or-Treaters
  • Move Halloween decorations from the walkway
  • Make sure to have lights ON
  • Place battery operated lights in Jack-O-Lanterns
    to avoid fire hazard
  • Keep sugar free and peanut free candy on hand

15
Pedestrian Safety
  • MOST IMPORTANT!
  • Always have an adult or guardian present
  • Walk on the side-walk never in the street!
  • Go in the late afternoon or at night avoid
    sunset

16
Pedestrian Safety
  • Avoid walking between parked cars
  • While driving WATCH FOR CHILDREN, ESPECIALLY
    WHEN BACKING they really blend in while in
    costume!
