Safety tips for parents:

  • When purchasing a costume, make sure the child's vision is unobstructed as possible.

  • After trick-or-treating inspect any items that aren't in their original packaging.

Tip for driving:

  • Be aware there will be a lot of foot traffic Halloween night.

Safety tips for businesses

  • Make sure employees are more observant Halloween night and are more ware of customers entering or leaving the business.
