Make Safety a Priority This Halloween
Halloween is right around the corner, and many kids are eagerly anticipating dressing up, trick-or-treating door-to-door and accumulating a large stash of candy. However, Halloween does pose some risks that children and parents should be aware of, and it's not just cavities from eating all of that candy.

Free Safety App
Let a wide network, including the local authorities, know the exact location of your group and that you need help using the React Mobile personal safety app. Perfect for also keeping track of kids this Halloween, the safety app features a "Follow-Me" function that lets your kids share their location with you in real-time and also see a map of where they've been. Your kids can let you know where they're going, how long they'll be gone and can even include a personalized message. If the duration of a "Follow-Me" session expires, the app will automatically send out a message to emergency contacts to make sure everything's okay.
