Stay Safe This Halloween

Keep your children and yourself safe on Halloween in Apple Valley, MN.

With Halloween and fall comes festive fun and seasonal celebrations! Halloween night is one of the best nights of the year for children due to the costumes, free candy, and parties. During the night, though, simple safety precautions can be forgotten and incidents can occur which can quickly turn your highly-anticipated night into a nightmare.

With these tips, ensure the safety of your children while trick-or-treating this Halloween night:

  • Always use flexible costume props (soft swords, knives, broomsticks).
  • Children should be accompanied by an adult while trick-or-treating.
  • Fasten reflective tape to your children’s costumes and bags.
  • Go equipped with a flashlight when trick-or-treating.
  • Wear make up instead of a poorly fitting mask.
  • Cross busy roads at designated crosswalks.
  • Walk on sidewalks.
  • Examine all treats before eating them.

If you are expecting trick-or-treaters:

  • Keep all paths clear.
  • Ensure all walking areas are well lit.
  • Place candle-lit jack-o’-lanterns away from doorsteps, walkways, and curtains.
  • Provide healthy snacks such as low-calorie treats, fruits, and vegetables.
