Fueled by candy and adrenaline, Halloween is one of the most dangerous days of the year. With nearly 3,500 Halloween related injuries each year, this day of fright is the worst day for pedestrians. Children and adults, dressed in ill-fitting costumes or masks, walking around in the dark can easily trip and fall over the smallest of bumps. Not to mention the high incident of pedestrians excitedly crossing across streets and accidentally being hit by cars. Choking and food allergies are another common safety hazard on Halloween as are accidental house fires due to candles and holiday decor. Whether you’re transforming your home into a haunted house, or handling out candy, these quick tips can help ensure that your Halloween is havoc-free.
When it comes to trick-or-treating in the neighborhood, ensure that costumes don’t drag on the ground and that peripheral vision isn’t impaired.
Add reflective tape to costumes and encourage children to use a flashlight.
Teach kids how to cross the street safely
Be aware of your surroundings
Never go out alone. Go door-to-door in groups
For your home, make sure your outdoor lights are in working order and that you take the time to fix broken stairs, railings or uneven pavement.
Use battery-operated candles instead of real flames for lighting pumpkins or for other decor.

I love the fact that she took a couple of days to meet with contractors to gather estimates on repairs for us, in order to strengthen our negotiating position.
The moment you'd rather forget? I want to remember them all!
Tanjy went out of her way to make our home-buying process as hassle-free as it possible. She always had an ear to listen, took time to educate us on laws that have changed in the last few years, and was extremely patient.
