Plan your route and have an adult go with you; use a flashlight; stay away from candles and open fires.

Visit only the homes with a porchlight on; don't walk inside a house to accept candy.

Wear light-colored or reflective costumes and clothing; make sure you can walk easily in your costume; use face paint rather than a mask, which can cover your eyes.

Stay on sidewalks and cross streets only in crosswalks after you've looked both ways.

Don't eat your treats until your parents or a trusted adult goes through them. They know which treats might not be safe.
