Have a Safe & Happy Halloween!


It’s a night of fun for kids and adults in LaFayette. But a number of factors including people walking in the dark, the threat of bad weather and strangers coming to our door mean that Halloween can have some tricks up its sleeve.  

Southern Insurance Associates wants your Halloween to be a happy one. Check out the tips below. And if you have any questions about Halloween safety or your insurance coverage give us a call at (706)996-8788.


Costume Safety

  • Costumes should be made of flame-resistant material. Don’t walk near lit candles.

  • Add reflective tape to costumes and bags.

  • Costumes should fit properly to prevent blocked vision and falls.

Safe trick-or-treating

  • Children should walk in groups with a trusted adult.

  • Make sure kids know their home phone number and how to call 911.

  • Carry flashlights and glow sticks to increase visibility.

  • Only enter homes if a trusted adult is present.

  • Examine treats. Homemade treats should only be eaten if you know the cook.

  • Limit the number of treats your children (and you) eat
