Some highlights include:

  • Wear comfortable, well fitting walking shoes
  • Make sure costumes don’t inhibit movement or pose a tripping hazard
  • Put reflective materials on costumes and/or trick or treat bags
  • Carry a flashlight with fresh batteries
  • Only approach homes where porch lights are on
  • Stay on sidewalks and in well-lit areas
  • Keep a close eye on cars, it’s hard for them to see trick or treaters in the dark
