Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) October 8, 2008
AmberAlertRegistry.org, a leader in helping protect children, has worked with several police departments to produce Halloween safety tips for parents and young children for trick-or-treating.
Halloween Safety Tips Include:
- Children shouldn't snack while they're out trick-or-treating. They should wait until they get home and parents have had a chance to inspect the goodies.
- When children bring their treats home, discard any home-made candy or baked goods. Parents of young children should also remove any choking hazards such as gum, peanuts, hard candies or small toys.
- If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when they should return home.
- Only go to homes with a porch light on, and to ensure Halloween safety, never enter a home or car for a treat.
- Stay in a group and communicate where they will be going.
- Carry a mobile phone for quick communication.
- Remain on well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk.
- Only cross the street as a group in established crosswalks. Never cross between parked cars or driveways.
- *For the entire list, visit the AmberAlertRegistry.org website.
"We have worked with several police agencies to create Halloween safety tips to give parents a reminder of what they need to be aware of as their young children go trick-or-treating this year," said Stuart Maesel, founder of AmberAlertRegistry.org. "It's very important that parents know where their children are going to be and that they follow certain rules to prevent being compromised in a dangerous situation. By reviewing these simple guidelines everyone can enjoy trick-or-treating this Halloween."
