Rasky's Trick Or Treating Safety Tips




Safe Trick-Or-Treating


Make sure young children are accompanied by an adult
Or responsible teenager when they go door-to-door

If you can't accompany your children
Instruct them to trick-or-treat in their own neighborhood And in well-lighted streets

If children are going to be out after dark, make sure they carry a flashlight

Teach your children to use the sidewalks if they can
If there are no sidewalks, walk on the left side of the street facing cars

Know which friends your children will be with and which route they are taking

Leave your porch light on so children will know it's OK to visit your home

Instruct children never to eat anything until they are home
And the treats have been carefully examined

Cut and wash fruit before eating

Throw away anything unwrapped

Check the wrappers of commercial treats for evidence of tampering

Call the police if there are any suspicious treats


Costume Safety

Look for the label Flame Resistant

Avoid costumes with big, baggy sleeves or billowing skirts

Choose costumes that are light and bright enough to be visible to motorists

Costumes should be short enough to prevent children from tripping

Children should wear well-fitting, sturdy shoes
High heels are not a good idea

Hats and scarfs should be tied securely to prevent them from slipping over children's eyes

A natural mask of cosmetics is better than a loose-fitting mask that might restrict breathing or obscure vision

Sword, knives, and similar costume accessories should be of soft and flexible material

Decorate costumes and treat bags with reflective tape

Rules To Keep You Safe On Halloween

When it appears that you have killed the monster
Never check to see if it's really dead

Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke

Do not search the basement, especially if the power has gone out

When you have the benefit of numbers, Never pair off and go alone

As a general rule, don't solve puzzles that open portals to Hell

Never stand in, on, or above a grave, tomb, or crypt
This would apply to any other house of the dead as well

If you're searching for something which caused a loud noise
And find out that it's just the cat
Get Out Quickly

If appliances start operating by themselves
Do not check for short circuits
Again, Get Out Quickly

Do not take anything from the dead
No matter how much you like it, it's bound to disagree with you sooner or later

If you find a town which looks deserted, there's probably a good reason for it
Don't stop and look around

If you're running from the monster, expect to trip or fall down at least twice
More if you are of the female persuasion

Also note that
Despite the fact that you are running and the monster is merely shambling along
It's still moving fast enough to catch up with you

If your companions suddenly begin to exhibit uncharacteristic behavior
Such as hissing, fascination for blood, glowing eyes, increasing hairiness
Get away from them immediately

Stay away from certain geographical locations, some of which are listed here
Amityville, Elm Street, Transylvania, Nilbog
Anywhere in Texas where chainsaws are sold
The Bermuda Triangle, or any small town in Maine

If your car runs out of gas at night on a lonely road
Do not go to the nearby deserted-looking house to phone for help
If you think that it is strange you ran out of gas
Even though you thought you had most of a tank, slap yourself in the head
You are going to die anyway, and most likely will be eaten

Happy Halloween
