Halloween, the night of frights, costumes, and spooky fun, is approaching. It’s that time of year when ghouls, witches, and superheroes alike take to the streets for a night of fun and frights! But amidst the spooky celebrations, safety should be your top priority. So, grab your cauldron and let SafeKab brew up some wicked ways to stay safe on your Halloween night out!
Choose Comfort Over Complication
Wearing a costume that’s more complicated than a gothic novel’s plot? Think again. Opt for comfort over complexity. You’re not solving mysteries; you’re meant to be having fun! Try to strike a balance of getting the costume right, and lasting the whole night!
Accessories can be as tricky. Make sure they don’t tangle, snag, or trip you up during your Halloween escapades. High heels can easily get tangled in a Dracula’s Bride train or in a Mummy’s bandage trail. Be spooky, but be safe!
Stay Together, Scare Together
You know what they say, “safety in numbers.” Stick with your fellow creatures to avoid getting lost or separated in the haunted maze of the night. Maybe employ a buddy system? That way none of the gang can be left on their own to fight off any monsters.
When crossing streets, keep your wits about you. Even the Headless Horseman would look both ways before galloping across the road!
Treats and Eats
Inspect the Bounty
If you’re out guising with the kids (or big kids) check your treat bags for any suspicious-looking items. If something seems amiss, toss it like a vampire in daylight.
Snacking on Ghoulish Delights
If you’re hosting a Halloween party or attending one, ensure that food and drink are prepared and stored properly. No one wants a food poisoning potion – that’s just too scary!
Mummy Mayhem – Alcohol Awareness
If your Halloween night includes alcohol, don’t turn into a drunken ghost. Know your limits and ensure you have a safe way to get back to your crypt. Just tap the SafeKab app and we’ll whisk you home faster you you can say ‘double, double toil and trouble. Fire burn and cauldron bubble’!
Beware of Witches’ Brew
If someone offers you a mysterious potion, think twice before sipping. If you don’t know what’s in it, better be safe than sorry!
Haunted Highways – Transportation Tricks
Designated Wagon Driver
Arrange for a designated driver if you’re off to the graveyard party. Or, just order you’re broomstick home through the SafeKab app and abracadabra, you’ll miss out all the ghouls and be home safe and sound!
Stranger Things – Stranger Danger
Stick to Familiar Haunts
Don’t wander into unfamiliar territory. Stick to the well-known haunts and paths you’re comfortable with. Stranger things happen in unfamiliar places. If you’re walking anywhere, remember to activate SafeWalk so you ghoulish gang know where you are and that you got home safe, avoiding any goblins on the way!
Communicate Like a Spirit Board
Keep your friends and family updated on your whereabouts. You’re not a ghost; they shouldn’t have to guess where you are. Remember you can share your location to your contacts at just the touch of a button through SafeWalk.
Mask Mastery – Visibility is Key
If your costume involves a mask, make sure it doesn’t obscure your vision. You need to see where you’re going, or you might bump into something scarier than you!
Opt for Light-Up Accessories
Consider light-up accessories on your costume. They make you visible and add a cool effect to your look. Who needs a torch when you’re the beacon of Halloween?
Zombie Apocalypse – Emergency Prep
Know Emergency Exits
Familiarise yourself with the emergency exits wherever you go. You never know when you might need to make a speedy escape from a horde of zombies… or a smelly bathroom.
Have a list of emergency contacts saved on your phone. Whether you lose your way or turn into a pumpkin at midnight, you’ll be prepared.
