Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween is just around the corner! How do you plan to celebrate?

If you plan to go out and about, here are some tips:

Choose your Halloween costume wisely

  • Check the weather forecast in advance and dress accordingly.
  • Don’t carry toy weapons that could be confused for the real thing.
  • Be sure to carry a charged cell phone.

Choose to be safe and legal – the legal drinking age is 21

  • Keep open containers of alcohol off of public property (streets & sidewalks), even if you are over 21.
  • Never drink and drive or ride with people who’ve been drinking. Have a game plan for getting home safely.

Use the buddy system

  • Walk to and from your destination with a trusted friend, especially at night.
  • If you must walk home alone, stay on a well-lit path and be aware of your surroundings.
  • Use late night transportation services by calling 734-647-8000.

Watch your drink

  • Never accept a beverage from someone you don’t know.
  • Never leave your drink unattended.

Know your limits and Stay in the Blue

  • Download the Stay in the Blue app.
  • If you see someone who needs medical attention, call 911. High intoxication levels can be deadly.

Check out alcohol-free events

Or you just might decide to have a Halloween movie marathon, instead. Whatever you do, always take care of your fellow Wolverines and exercise good judgment as you celebrate Halloween this year. Go Boo!
