Halloween is fun for everyone, but pay attention to these tips which come from the U.S. Army Combat Readiness/Safety Center: 1. Supervise children, and limit their adventures in treat acquisition to the housing area in which they reside and only residences with lighted entry ways. 2. Make sure their costumes are fire resistant and easy to see, short enough to prevent tripping. 3. Use reflective tape or “glow” spray paint or a chemical glow light. 4. Always use sidewalks and crosswalks; look in all directions before walking across the street (don’t cut through yards). 5. Make sure masks or head coverings don’t block vision. 6. Caution children against vandalism and causing damage to property. 7. Carry a flashlight and if a pumpkin is carried, be sure it’s lit with a battery, not a candle. 8. Feed your child a full meal; inspect the treats before they are eaten. 9. Pet owners: prevent your pet from being a menace to children. 10. If you think your child has eaten something that made him sick, call 911 or the Poison Control Hotline at 1-800-222-1222. Shake off the shutdown! Mark your calendars to shake off the shutdown.
