Staying Safe for the Spooky Holiday

Staying Safe for the Spooky Holiday

The Bennett Foundation

The Bennett Foundation loves all things Halloween, including your safety. From losing your chaperone to bad drivers on the road or staying away from creepy strangers, the night of Halloween can quickly turn into a real-life scary situation. To prepare you for the most eerie night of the year, we provide to you a few tips on staying safe during your trick or treating experience. 

Extra caution never hurts when it comes to keeping your little monsters safe. Trick or treat-ing is fun but it’s always more fun in groups. Find some adults and kids and make a night of it.  


  • Flashlight 
  • Extra house key 
  • Cell phone  
  • Band-aids 
  • Goodie bag 
  • Reflective tape for back of costumes  

The thrill of Halloween often factors into accidents as excited kids scurry from door to door. Keep children on the sidewalks, and shepherd them carefully when they need to cross the road. 

Always check candy prior to consumption!  

When in doubt. Throw it out.

Do not eat: 

  • Homemade items or baked goods unless you personally know who gave you them 
  • Any unusual discoloration or appearance 
  • Spoiled or unwrapped items  
  • Anything that isn’t commercially wrapped  

The Bennett Foundation values your safety. We challenge you to, before the candy collecting festivities begin, put together a simple plan to get home safely.  

Enjoy the holiday & stay safe out there!
