Consider adding reflective tape or to costumes and trick or treat bags
Secure emergency identification(name,address,phone number)discreetly within Halloween attire
Masks can limit or block eyesight so consider non-toxic makeup or a decorated hat as a safe alternative
Make sure to us battery powered lanterns or chemical glo sticks in place of candles in decorations and costumes
Teach children their home phone numbers and how to dial 9-1-1 if they have an emergency or become lost, this is a free call from any phone
Make sure children know the Stop-Drop-Roll should their clothes catch fire
Take extra time to eliminate tripping hazards on porches and walkways, move flower pots,low tree brances, and garden hoses that may prove harmful to young children who are rushing from house to house
Also a reminder its a good time to change batteries on your smoke alarms, be safe and Happy Halloween.
