What can you do?

PREPARE YOUR KID

Accompany your child trick-or-treating. Make sure your child's costume is easily visible to drivers. Give your child a flashlight or glow stick to increase their visibility. Be mindful of allergies and choking hazards when giving out or receiving snacks.

DITCH THE CANDLES

While more light is highly recommended, a candle's large flame can lead to unfortunate hazards with devastating consequences. To avoid this, consider replacing those candles with tea lights. This will give you the glow and feel of a real candle with less risk. While you're at it, be careful when carving that pumpkin.

DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE

There's no excuse for driving drunk. Designate a sober driver, ask a sober friend for a ride home, call a cab, or use a ride-sharing service. It is not worth the potential life of another or yours.
