For neighborhood trick-or-treaters, here are some safety tips:
- Have kids wear reflective, fire-resistant costumes that are short enough to prevent tripping.
- Have them use makeup instead of masks that impair their vision.
- Have them carry a flashlight and be careful crossing streets.
- Keep pets inside during trick-or-treat times.
- Have an adult accompany small children.
- Inspect treats before children eat them.
