Just some tips ....


- Prepare dinner before trick or treating. Otherwise, kids will dig into their candy before you can examine it.

- Make sure kids are dressed properly for weather conditions.

- Costumes should be flame-retardant. They should not drag on the ground. Costumes should have reflective materials or tape on them so people can see children in the dark.

- Encourage children to paint their faces rather than wear a mask, which could interfere with their vision.

- They should visit only the homes of people they know, and only if the homes have porch lights on.

- Accompany young children. If they go with an older sibling, make sure he or she knows which houses to visit. Let them carry your cell phone so they can call you if there is any trouble.

- Kids going out alone should have a scheduled time to be home and a watch they can read in the dark.

- Trick-or-treaters should be told to walk, not run, and stay on sidewalks. They should cross streets at corners and obey traffic signals.

- Homeowners should clear their yards and walks of anything a child could trip on. Pets should be kept inside. Lighted candles or jack-o'-lanterns should be set away from doorways.
