BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Looks like rain tonight for Halloween. But if your still planning to trick-or-treat, Boca Police are offering some tips that apply no matter the weather.
• Costumes should be flame-retardant and allow children to walk freely without tripping.
• Wear reflective or bright costumes at night.
• Avoid wearing facial masks which may impair children’s ability to see, hear, and move.
• Use non-toxic face paint and makeup.
• Children should carry a flashlight.
• Plan your route ahead of time, staying in your own neighborhood (or at
least familiar ones) and only along well-lit streets.
• Always trick-or-treat with friends and stay in a group, there is safety in numbers.
• Extra care should be taken on streets and at crossings, especially at dusk and after dark.
• Avoid crossing through yards, driveways and poorly lit areas.
• Teach children to never approach a home that is not well lit, inside and out.
• Children should never enter a home or a car for a treat.
• An adult should always examine Halloween treats before children eat them. Never eat
open or unwrapped Halloween foods.
