Area trick-or-treat schedules
Halloween safety tips
-- Add reflective tape to costumes or trick-or-treat bags.
-- Use flame-resistant costumes.
-- Use face makeup instead of masks that can cover eyes and make it difficult to see.
When out and about
-- Make sure trick-or-treaters have a flashlight.
-- Visit only homes that have porch lights on.
-- Accept treats only at the door. Never go inside.
-- Walk only on sidewalks, not in the street. If there is no sidewalk, walk at the edge of the roadway, facing traffic.
-- Look both ways before crossing the street. Cross only at the corner.
-- Don't cut across yards or use alleys. Don't cross between parked cars.
-- Be cautious around strange animals.
-- Never enter the home or vehicle of a person offering candy.
-- Don't eat treats until they can be inspected at home.
-- Make sure young children are accompanied by a responsible adult.
-- Make sure outdoor lights are on.
-- Sweep leaves away from sidewalks and steps.
-- Clear porches and front lawns of any obstacles that children might trip over.
-- Restrain pets.
-- Use glow sticks instead of candles in jack-o-lanterns to avoid fire hazards.
