■ Carry a flashlight or a light stick.
■ Plan costumes that are bright and visible at night; if the material is dark, use reflective tape.
■ Masks can obscure your vision; consider using hypo-allergenic face paints instead.
■ Make sure the kids have a good meal before trick-or-treating to keep them from filling up on treats.
■ Confine or restrain your cat or dog to avoid escapes when opening the door to serve trick-or-treaters. Also, make sure your pet has a collar and an ID tag.
■ Homeowners should be on the lookout for hazards: garden hoses, support wires, low-hanging tree limbs and flower pots.
