As children get ready to hit the streets for trick-or-treating, the Michigan State Police is offering up safety tips to make sure everyone enjoys Halloween.

Lt. Brian Cole of the Michigan State Police Third District says “part of enjoying Halloween festivities is recognizing possible dangers and taking precautions. There are potential risks involved with trick-or-treating, but with the proper safety measures everyone can have an enjoyable and safe Halloween.”

Trick-or-Safety tips:

  • Children of any age should be accompanied by an adult.
  • Accept treats at the door and never go into a stranger’s house.
  • Stay in familiar neighborhoods. Plan your route and share it with family.
  • Stay in a group.
  • Only visit homes with the porch light on.
  • Stay in populated and well-lit areas. Don’t cut through back alleys or fields.
  • Cross the street only at corners or crosswalks.
  • Don’t cross the street between parked cars.
  • Carry a flashlight.
  • Wear light-colored or reflective-type clothing to be more visible.
  • Make sure all costumes are flame retardant. Avoid walking too close to open fires, candles and jack-o-lanterns.
  • Make sure an adult inspects all candy before eating it. Don’t eat candy that is already opened.
  • Be sure to follow community curfew rules.
