Halloween is just days away and we want your family to be safe while you're having fun. The American Red Cross has ten tips parents can follow to help keep your kids safe while enjoying the festivities:

  1. Trick-or-treaters need to see and be seen. - Use face makeup instead of masks which can make seeing difficult. - Give trick-or-treaters a flashlight to light their way. - Add reflective tape to costumes and trick-or-treat bags. - Have everyone wear light-colored clothing.

  2. Make sure adults know where the kids are going. A parent or responsible adult should accompany young children door-to-door.

  3. Be cautious around animals, especially dogs.

  4. Walk, don’t run.

  5. Only visit homes that have a porch light on. Accept treats at the door – never go inside.

  6. Walk only on the sidewalks, not in the street. - If no sidewalk is available, walk at the edge of the roadway, facing traffic. - Look both ways before crossing the street, and cross only at the corner. - Don’t cut across yards or use alleys. - Don’t cross between parked cars. - Drivers – use extra caution. The youngsters may forget to look both ways before crossing.

  7. A grown-up should check all treats before eating and that all packages are sealed. - Make sure to remove loose candy, open packages and choking hazards. - Discard any items with brand names that you are not familiar with.
