10/29/12 - Halloween Safety

Watch for ViewPoint segments on KFVS12 normally scheduled to air Mondays near the end of Heartland News at 6:00 & 10:00, and Tuesdays at 6:28 a.m. and near the end of Heartland News At Noon.

This week we will celebrate Halloween in the Heartland. Wednesday will see children sent out into the night into areas where others, both children and adults, will be shielding their identity. We will send them knocking on strangers' doors asking for treats. It is tradition and it is fun but it can be dangerous if precautions are not taken. Let's make sure we do everything we can to keep Halloween fun and our children safe this year. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Whether you're in costume or not, make sure that your clothing is bright enough to be clearly visible and carry a flashlight.
  • Children should not enter homes or apartments
  • Make sure children are always accompanied by an adult
  • Warn kids not to eat treats before they are examined
  • Try to only go to homes where the residents are known and have lights on
  • Finally, watch out for your children, and the children of others.

The safety and well being of our children should be a high priority every day, but especially during Halloween. Whether you have a Power Ranger or a Little Red Riding Hood out trick or treating, do everything you can to have a safe and happy Halloween.
