While trick-or-treating can provide a lot of fun, general precautions should be taken. Some basic safety tips to follow including:
•Only let children visit houses of people they know who have turned an outside light on to welcome trick-or-treaters.
•Inspect all candy before eating, and throw out any open or suspicious looking candy.
•Have an adult accompany children while they trick-or-treat.
•Tell children to walk instead of run and look both ways before crossing the street.
•Encourage children to wear reflective costumes or add light sticks to their costumes to help make them more visible to motorists.
•Be extra cautious of children crossing the street if driving during or shortly before or after trick-or-treat hours.
