The American Red Cross offers what it calls "Lucky 13 Safety Tips" for parents and trick-or-treaters this Halloween:
- Plan your route and share it with your family. If possible, an adult should accompany children.
- Wear light-colored or reflective-type clothing so you are more visible (remember to put reflective tape on bikes, skateboards, etc.).
- Use face paint rather than masks or things that will cover your eyes.
- Cross the street only at corners.
- Look both ways before crossing the street to check for cars.
- Walk on sidewalks -- not in the street.
- Use a flash light to light your way.
- Visit homes that have a porch light on.
- Stay away from open fires and candles (costumes can be extremely flammable).
- Accept your treats at the door and never go into a stranger's house.
- Have a grown-up inspect treats before eating them. Don't eat candy if the package has already been opened.
