Halloween Safety

Updated: Thursday, October 31 2013, 10:20 AM EDT
Tonight we will see the streets fill with costumed
kids. To make sure the Halloween fun doesn't take a frightening twist
there are a few safety tips to follow. This morning, Asheville Police Public Safety Officer Keith McCulloch
showed News 13's Victoria Dunkle the easy ways to keep safety first on
the Night of Fright. They include keeping your home and walkway well lit.  Choosing
bright, reflective colors for your costumes.  Put your child's name,
address and phone number inside the costume in case he or she gets lost
or there is an accident. Opt for face make over masks. If you use a mask make sure the eye openings are big enough to see through clearly. Kids are twice as likely to be hit by cars on Halloween. To lower
that risk, Ofc. McCulloch says you should make sure you know your route,
use flashlight and glow sticks as you walk, always walk in a group, and
walk - don't run through the neighborhood. Be sure you know who you are getting you candy from and always check it before the kids eat any of it and take advantage of family friendly events like Hoopla! and Trunk or Treats.
