The chilly month of October can be very scary for little boys and girls, but Halloween can be even scarier for their parents because of situations that can arise on or around Hallow's Eve. To safeguard little hobgoblins, area law enforcement officials and safety experts have some tips. First, make sure costumes fit properly. Ill-fitting masks can obstruct vision or cause breathing problems and lenghthy costumes can trip children while they're running to and from houses. Police encourage costumed kids to wear reflective tape or light colored clothing and to carry flashlights in case they are outdoors after twilight. It's also good practice to have adults accompany children through both famiiar and unfamiliar neighborhoods. Finally, health officials at Good Samaritan Hospital advise parents look over all goodies and inspect food for dangerous objects. Candy that is unwrapped should be discarded immediately. Following simple tips can allow for a happy Halloween instead of a scary night.
