Tips for a Safe Halloween
- Parents should walk with younger children or require a buddy system if the child is old enough to trick‐or‐treat without you.
- Avoid costumes that have masks which restrict vision.
- Choose costumes which are brightly colored for better visibility.
- Parents should check each item in their children’s bags before children eat any of the treats. If in doubt, discard.
