Be ‘Safe’ This Halloween with Tips from Amica Insurance
Date:10/29/2013

Lincoln, RI (PRWEB) October 29, 2013

Halloween is one of the most enjoyable days of the year for children. But there are many dangers that come with wearing a costume and trick-or-treating, so Amica Insurance is sharing tips to help keep kids safe.

As of 2011, 73 percent of parents say their children take part in trick-or-treating, according to Safe Kids Worldwide. Additionally, more than twice as many children are killed in pedestrian/vehicle accidents between 4 and 10 p.m. on Halloween than on a normal day. That’s why Amica is offering the following tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for a safe and enjoyable Halloween experience:

  • Swords, knives and similar costume accessories should be short, soft and flexible.
  • Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Kids should be accompanied by a trusted adult or travel in groups.
  • Fasten reflective tape to costumes and candy bags so drivers can spot you.
  • Examine all candy for choking hazards or any signs of tampering. Don’t eat too much candy at one time.
