Tips to Having a Safe Halloween

Halloween can be a fun, festive way to go out with your friends, but Halloween is not always as sugar-coated as you may think. It is important to stay vigilant to stay safe.

REGISTER YOUR HALLOWEEN PARTY

There is nothing scarier than the police showing up at your unregistered house party on Halloween because of a noise complaint. Registering your party allows an opportunity to receive a warning as well as provide a 20-minute window to voluntarily terminate a party after a noise complaint is received. You can register your party any day of the week. Student registration is available through CSU Off-Campus Life.

WATCH YOUR DRINK

If you’re going to drink, do so responsibly. Never accept a beverage from someone you don’t know. Never leave your drink unattended. If you step away for even a few seconds, get a new drink. It’s a scary world out there, even when it isn’t Halloween, so be cautious when going out.

KNOW YOUR LIMITS

You don’t have to be extremely drunk or stoned to have a good time on Halloween. Especially when going out to new places. Have a good time, but don’t overdo it.

CALL AN UBER, LYFT OR RAMRIDE

Don’t drive drunk or stoned. It isn’t worth it. A lot of people are out on Halloween, most walking around and not driving. This increases the likelihood of accidents. If you do choose to drink or smoke, call someone to take you home.

GO WITH A GROUP AND LEAVE WITH THE SAME GROUP

Stay together and use the buddy system when going out to parties, clubs, bars, etc. Don’t leave places alone, it’s going to be dark, cold and could be unsafe. It just takes a second to ask a friend to go with you.

TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS

On Halloween or any other night, if something “just doesn’t feel right” trust your gut instinct. It’s probably right. Leave the party, don’t accept the drink, or just say no to whatever it is that’s making you uncomfortable.
