With witches, goblins and superheroes descending on neighborhoods, here are some safety tips for parents to help prepare their children for a safe and enjoyable trick-or-treat holiday.
Wear light-colored or reflective-type clothing so you are more visible.
Don’t hide or cross the street between parked cars.
Cross the street only at corners and look both ways before crossing the street to check for cars.
Plan your route and carry a flashlight to light your way.
Use face paint rather than masks for better visibility.
Visit homes that have a porch light on.
Never go into a stranger’s home. It’s OK to receive candy from outside the door.
Inspect all treats before your child eats them.
Make sure an adult goes with young children.
Use glow sticks or flashlights in pumpkins instead of candles, which are a fire risk.
