Halloween Safety Tips The Massachusetts Department of Fire Services have issued the following safety tips for Halloween. -Smaller
children should always be with an adult. It's best to take little ones
out early. If older children are going out without you, go over the
ground rules first. -Know what neighborhoods they will be in. -Don't all them in areas with which you are not completely comfortable. -Have the children stay in a group. -Let them know what time to be home. -Give them a cell phone to use if necessary. -Use sidewalks. -Cross only at the corners, never dart out between parked cars. -Cover one side of the street at a time, no criss-crossing. -Never go inside someone's house unless it is a friend's. -Never accept a ride in a car. -Only approach houses where the outside lights are on as a signal of welcome. -Bring their bags at home to be checked by an adult before eating a single treat..
