— Never send young children out alone.
— Walk with younger children to the door to receive their treats.
— Plan your route around familiar neighborhoods with well-lit streets.
— Kids should wear bright, flame-retardant costumes so they can easily seen in the dark.
— Likewise, add reflective tape to candy bags and costumes, so drivers can see your kids.
— Kids should not approach any vehicle unless a parent is with them.
— Basic pedestrian safety rules are still in effect.
— Look carefully at the candy; throw out unwrapped treats.
— Your kids should know their home phone number and address in case they get separated.
