Tricks, treats and safety

Get your goodie bags ready. Trick-or-treat time is here! Trick-or-treat is a special time for children of all ages, be they dressing up and running from door to door for candy or passing out sweets to monsters and princesses. Staying safe is the key to ensuring that everyone has a good evening.

Attorney General Morrisey offered these tips:

Tips for parents:

-- Make sure all costumes are flame resistant.

-- Avoid baggy costumes, or costumes with large masks that could make it harder for children to walk or see their surroundings.

-- Be careful of fake swords, guns and knives. Even though not real, they can still pose a hazard.

-- Create a trick-or-treat plan with your kids showing where they can go, if they are old enough to go alone. Accompany your kids whenever possible. Have older kids stay in a group, and ensure at least one of them has a cell phone on them that they can use if needed.
