Being Safe on Halloween

MARIANNA, Fla. - Trick or treating will have more law enforcement on standby tuesday night.

Marianna police chief, hayes baggett, says keep safety in mind when participating in halloween festivities.

One thing to be sure of, costumes and shoes fit well and that they are easily seen in the dark.

"Make sure the children have masks that they can see through that they won't trip over stuff. make sure it's reflective or that they carry a flash light," said Baggett.

If you do not plan on going with your child, be sure to know what route they will take.

Also, set rules about not eating any of the treats until kids get home.

"Most definitely check the candy before you let the children eat it and make sure it's nothing opened or been tampered with," Said Baggett.

Law enforcement also encourages those who will be giving out candy, to have your home safe for trick or treaters.

Turn on a porch light and remove things from your yard that might cause a trip hazard.

If you do not want any visitors be sure to turn porch lights off, Tuesday night.
