SAFETY TIPS

Per local police, children going trick-or-treating are encouraged to wear reflective gear and wear comfortable shoes. Masks, particularly those that obstruct the eyes of the wearer, should avoided. Police also say children should stick to neighborhoods and routes that they know and never approach a home that do not have outside lights on nor go inside any homes.

Furthermore, police ask children to stay away from pets that may become frightened and avoid toy weapons.
