While out trick-or-treating this year, keep on the lookout for firefighters from the Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority in your neighborhood.

Firefighters will be handing out small red flashers that the kids can attach to their costumes to make them more visible. By wearing the flashers, kids and parents can make Halloween a safe night of fun.

Puget Sound Fire issued the following safety tips for Wednesday, Oct. 31:

  • Young children should always have adult supervision
  • Pick costumes that have bright colors
  • Avoid masks or other headgear that limits peripheral vision – use face makeup instead of a mask
  • Add reflective material to costumes
  • Carry and use a flashlight
  • Cross streets carefully and use sidewalks where available
  • Wear your fire department issued red flasher
  • Trick-or-treat in neighborhoods you are familiar with
  • Never eat candy not in its original wrapper
  • Plan your path so that others will know where you are
  • Never enter a house unless you know the residents well

House safety during Halloween:

  • Keep your porch well lit
  • Remove tripping hazards such as garden hoses, bikes and toys
  • Keep excitable pets away from children
