Practice Safety for Halloween

Tucson's first responders are urging parents, kids, and drivers to be extra cautious during Halloween activities tomorrow night.

The Tucson Police Department (TPD) says young children can easily get distracted by lights and dart across the street without looking for cars first. Nationwide, more kids get hit and killed by cars on Halloween than on any other day of the year.

The Tucson Fire Department (TFD) says safety begins with costumes, urging trick-or-treaters to wear light colors and masks and decorations that don't obstruct vision. Glow sticks also are a good idea to make it easier to be seen. TFD also says good, closed-toe shoes will help minimize tripping hazards.
