Halloween is just around the corner. Whether you’re going out with friends or trick or treating with the family, it’s important to keep the safety of everyone in mind. We compiled a list of simple, easily implemented safety tips that will improve your safety while you enjoy your Halloween weekend.
Carry a Flashlight
With autumn in full swing, nights are getting longer and it gets darker earlier. Carrying a flashlight while trick or treating makes it easier to see ahead of you and identify potential risks and hazards if you’re walking anywhere. Your phone works as a flashlight, but sometimes it’s easier (and more comfortable) to carry a small flashlight that’s easy to turn on and off.
Travel in Groups
There’s always power in numbers and Halloween is no different. If you’re planning to go out, travel with a group of friends or in pairs. This will help improve the safety of everyone and serve as a potential deterrent to any bad actors.
Share Your Location
In the event of an emergency, sharing your location prior to going out with a trusted friend or family member can make a huge difference. In addition to sharing your location, you can let a few people know where you plan on heading for Halloween. These two safety tips make it easier for people to dispatch the proper help to you.
Check Your Drinks
When you’re at a get-together, it’s always important to check your drink or keep it near you and covered until you’re ready to sip from it. As with many parties, there are always strangers coming and going so protecting your drink the best you can is an important safety measure to take.
Carry a POM Safe Device
POM Safe is a portable safety device that enables you to call for help with the tap of a button. During Halloween, carrying a POM makes it simple to call for help in the event of any emergency situation whether it’s for your personal safety or for someone else. POM can connect you with a private dispatcher to ensure you get the help you need promptly.
