Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups with a trusted adult.
Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you.
Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them.

Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see others and others see you.
Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent irritation.
Look both ways before crossing the street. Use established crosswalks when possible.
Lower risk for serious eye injury by not wearing decorative contact lenses
nly walk on sidewalks if possible, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic.
Wear well fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls.
Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers.
Enter homes only if you feel safe and if they are well lit.
Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Wear flame-resistant costumes
