FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
While Halloween is a favorite holiday for most families with young children, it does pose several safety risks. Children younger than 12 should be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult while trick-or-treating. Older children should trick-or-treat with a group, not alone.
The Springfield Fire Department, Police Department and Public Works Department offer the following tips to keep kids safe this All Hallows’ Eve.
Make sure masks don’t restrict vision and costumes don’t present a tripping hazard. Masks should be removed before crossing the street or children should hold hands with an adult.
