HOW TO TRICK-OR-TREAT THE RIGHT WAY

Trick-or-treating safety tips haven't changed too much over the years, and there's a reason for that -- they work. Here are some reminders from YMCA of the USA and Prevent Blindness America:

Make sure kids wear light-colored, flame-retardant costumes and reflectors.

Tripping is a big cause of Halloween injuries. Make sure costumes aren't too long, and use face makeup instead of hoods or masks that can obscure vision.

Trick-or-treaters should avoid crossing dark yards or lawns where they could trip on obstacles. Also, give them flashlights.

At home, eliminate tripping hazards on your own porch and walkway, and make sure jack-o'-lanterns are out of the way.

Remind kids of all ages (both those escorted by someone older and those big enough to be on their own) not to enter homes, accept rides from strangers or eat any treats until parents have inspected them.
