Halloween Safety Tips

Happy Halloween

Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!

Below are helpful Halloween safety tips from the Irvine Police Department (IPD).  Please keep this information in mind as you and your children head out for a fun night of trick-or-treating.

  • Accompany children while trick-or-treating
  • Never allow children to enter homes without an adult
  • When crossing the street, use crosswalks and/or cross at the corners
  • Carry flashlights or glow sticks
  • Put reflective tape on costumes
  • Use face make-up instead of masks, so children can see easier 
  • Drivers should be extra careful to look for children in dark costumes and keep speeds low
  • Ensure porches and walkways are well lit
