Trick or Treat Safety this Halloween

Van Buren County is a fun and safe place to live and raise a family with numerous outdoor activities and interesting sights. This Halloween we want everyone to have a great time dressing up and collecting delicious goodies. We also want everyone to be as safe as possible.

  • Always travel in groups with a trusted adult and never enter a house without that adult.
  • Only take packaged, store bought edibles and check they are intact.
  • Stick to the sidewalk, carry a flashlight, and look both ways before crossing the street.
  • Costumes should be flame-resistant, lack sharp point and edges, masks should not obscure vision.
