In addition to keeping dry on Halloween, there are some safety tips to bear in mind for kids, teens and adults, provided by the Pasadena Police Department:
- Do not trick-or treat alone and be sure to be with a trusted adult.
- Try to have a flashlight when trick-or-treating to ensure you can see and other can see you. And put reflective tape on costumes and bags to help drivers see you.
- Walk from house to house and do not run, be sure to look both ways before crossing the street and use crosswalks when possible
- Only visit well-lit houses and never go inside.
- Make sure that masks do not block your view.
- Eat only factory-wrapped treats and avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers. Also, make sure to check treats for choking hazards and be sure they've not been tampered with before eating them.
- Do not accept rides from strangers.
- Carry a fully charged cell phone for emergencies.
