It's time to release the ghouls and goblins onto the streets in search of treats. The state fire marshal has offered fire safety tips for celebrating Halloween.

 

Costumes

* Children should carry a flashlight and their costumes should be bright-colored or have reflective tape to highlight them.

* Be sure all parts of the costume are labeled flame retardant.

* Costumes should not have trailing material or tails long enough to cause falls.

* Pointed objects such as swords and devils’ forks should be made of soft material.

* If your child wears a mask instead of make-up on their face, double check that the eye holes are large enough to see through clearly.
