[ARCHIVED] Children's Tips For A Safe Halloween

• Try to Trick-or-Treat when it is still light outside.

• Wear a costume that makes it easy for you to walk, see and be seen.

• If you must go out at night, make certain that your costume is light in color.

• Carry a flashlight so you can see and be seen easily.

• Use reflective tape on your costume so people driving cars can see you.

• A face mask will keep you from seeing well. Take off your mask before you cross a street.

• Why not use makeup instead of a mask?

• Have a parent, older brother or sister go Trick-or-Treating with you.

• If someone older cannot go with you, Trick-or-Treat with a group of children.

• Plan your Trick-or-Treat route ahead of time. Pick streets that are well-lighted.

• Tell your family on which streets you will be Trick-or-Treating.

• Cross only at corners. Never cross the street between parked cars or in the middle of the block.

• If there is no sidewalk, walk facing traffic.

• Wait until you get home to sort, check and eat your treats.

Have a Safe and Happy Halloween!
