As families enjoy the spooky holiday, the American Red Cross urges parents to take safety precautions while Trick-or-Treating with children. 

A list of the organization's ten safety suggestions are below:

1. Trick-or-treaters need to see and be seen. So, use face makeup instead of masks that make seeing difficult. Try giving trick-or-treaters a flashlight to light their way, and add reflective tape to costumes and trick-or-treat bags. In addition to this, it may be helpful to have everyone wear light-colored clothing.

2. Use flame-resistant costumes.

3. Make sure adults know where kids are going. A parent or responsible adult should accompany young children door-to-door.

4. Be cautious, around animals, especially dogs.

5. Walk, don't run.

6. Only visit homes that have a porch light on. Accept treats at the door- never go inside. 

7. Walk only on the sidewalks, not in the street. And if no sidewalk is available, walk at the edge of the roadway, facing traffic. Be sure to look both ways before crossing the street and cross only at the corner. Avoid cutting across yards, using alleys, as well as crossing between parked cars. Drivers should also use extra caution as children may forget to look both ways before crossing the street.

8. An adult should check all candy before it's consumed. The adult should be sure to remove loose candy, any opened packages and choking hazards. It may also be a good idea to discard of any items with brand names you're unfamiliar with. 

9. Light the area well so young visitors can see.

10. Sweep leaves from your sidewalks and steps. Clear your porch or front yard of obstacles someone might trip over.
