7 Helpful Tricks for a Safe and Warm Halloween Season
October is here! The season of pumpkins, apples, flannels, and falling leaves has quietly slipped into our lives—whether we’re ready for it or not. This cool change in seasons can only mean one thing: Halloween is on the horizon! And as moms and dads scramble to schedule their furnace maintenance in St. Charles County, MO, and nearby, little kids are thinking about other ghoulish things, such as finding just the right costume for their annual trick-or-treat night.
And don’t forget about safety! At Jerry Kelly Heating & Air Conditioning, we put a great deal of stock in family and the importance of their comfort and safety, especially during this time of year. To ensure your loved ones’ protection this Halloween, here are seven safety tips for trick-or-treating recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics:
- Pay attention. Parents—and kids: Put down those phones while you’re out walking. Simply being aware of your surroundings is huge.
- Be sure all costumes are fire resistant and not tripping hazards.
- Choose bright, reflective costumes or carry glow sticks so children are visible to motorists.
- Don’t let kids eat candy until they are home and it is checked thoroughly by an adult.
- For older kids, know their routes and when they will return home.
- Avoid masks that can obstruct vision.
- Only visit houses in well-lit areas and have older kids travel in packs with their friends.
