• Here are safe Trick or Treating tips from Mike Russo, the town constable:
  • Wear light-colored clothing short enough to prevent tripping and add reflective tape
  • Wear fire-resistant costumes
  • Make sure children can see well through face masks
  • Don’t wear masks or disguises into businesses
  • Adults should accompany young children and children with special needs
  • Go out in daylight hours if possible or carry a flashlight if you’ll be out after dark
  • Motorists are reminded to slow down and be aware of their surroundings
  • Only give and accept wrapped or packaged treats
  • Examine all treats before allowing children to eat them. If you find a suspicious item, contact police as soon as possible at 327-3811; if injury is involved, dial 911
  • Avoid props such as toy guns, which can look real
  • Consider block parties instead of trick-or-treating
  • Don’t fire guns – it’s illegal and – what goes up, must come down
  • Check the weather and have appropriate dress under costumes in the event of cold temperatures
