If you have children who will be trick-or-treating in Bakersfield this Saturday, take extra precautions to help ensure they remain safe. This doesn’t necessarily mean limiting time outdoors and combing over every candy for signs of tampering – just taking time to talk to your kids before you let them loose.
To help keep your little ones safe this Halloween:
- Make sure masks and hats do not obscure vision
- Cross only at cross walks and look both ways before entering the street
- Stay on the sidewalk in well-lit neighborhoods
- Visit homes you know in neighborhoods you trust
- Carry a flashlight
- Travel in groups
- Put reflective tape on costumes, shoes, and bags
If your children are small, accompany them on their route. Try to maintain an kid:adult ratio of 4:1 to ensure no one goes unnoticed. Above all else, have fun and enjoy your time with friends and family.
