Halloween is an exciting and thrilling time for children but it can also be a dangerous time. We can help reduce the risks by following a few safety tips. Dress children in reflective costumes, make sure they can see clearly and stay together in a group or with adults. Stay on sidewalks when available and don’t cross the street until you reach an intersection. Parents should also carry a flashlight and go out with children until the age of 12. Avoid homes without the lights on and go to familiar areas.
