The Danbury Police Department has issued some Halloween Safety reminders for parents if they're taking children out trick or treating this evening. With wet leaves on driveways and walkways, homeowners should turn on exterior lights and remove objects from the yard that might be a hazard to visitors.
Danbury Police say Halloween can be fun, but there are some worries that can cast a spell on the evening's festivities. But there are some tips to combat that. Some of the yearly reminders include going out in a group, mapping out a route and telling older kids when they are expected home. Parents should check flashlights for working batteries, put reflective strips on costumes and be sure any masks don't obstruct vision.
When kids are back home from trick or treating, inspect fruit and homemade goodies, and remind kids not to eat opened candies or treats not in their original wrappers.
