Tips for trick or treaters By Pantagraph staff Police and emergency response agencies agree on a lot of things when it comes to Halloween trick or treating. Here's a list: Plan the route children will take and have an adult tag along. Limit the route to an area the children know well. Don't let children go anywhere alone. They always should travel in pairs or larger groups. Make sure children wear light-colored or reflective-type clothing so they're more visible at night. Also have them wear tennis shoes that provide good traction. Apply facial paint rather than masks or other material that cover children's eyes. If you are driving during trick-or-treat hours, be aware of more children being outside. Drive slowly through neighborhoods and watch for children in the Street and on medians; also exit driveways carefully. ONLY let children go to homes where porch lights are on. To prepare for the kids, make sure porches are clear. Make sure trick or treaters cross the street at comers and don't try to hide or dodge between parked cars. Use sidewalks; if there are no sidewalks, tell kids to use the left side of the street so they are facing oncom ing cars. Have at least one child or the adult accompanying the group carry a flashlight. Instruct children that they are not to eat anything until they get home and then inspect the treats; don't allow anyone to eat candy if the package has been opened. If any candy or other treat appears to have ' been tampered with, immediately call police. 6.M mi 17 A.
