Public safety officers encourage parents and children to follow basic safety guidelines, including:

  • Wear flame-retardant costumes marked with reflective tape.
  • Never leave a lit jack-o-lantern unattended.
  • Tell children to bring all their treats home, so a parent can sort out any suspicious or hazardous items.

All children should:

  • Take a pre-established route in a known neighborhood and have a curfew.
  • Bring flashlights, stay on sidewalks and avoid crossing yards and cross streets at the corner, not between parked cars.
  • Stop at all corners and stay together in a group before crossing the street.
  • Visit only well-lit homes and remain on the porch; do not go inside.

Young children should:

  • Be accompanied by an adult at all times.
  • Have their name, address and phone number on their costume
