Prescott Valley Police offer tips for a safe Halloween

Prescott Valley Police offer these Halloween safety tips:

• The costume should allow good visibility to be aware of surroundings.

• Check the flammability of the costume or the material that you plan to make the costume with before purchase.

• Be careful with children and their costume around fire or other heat sources

• Make sure that if your child is carrying a prop that it is not real. If props are necessary make sure the items such as a sword, knife or a pitchfork, have smooth tips and are flexible enough to not cause injury. Do not allow children to carry real weapons.

• Use caution when carrying any fake firearms as today's plastic guns are realistic in their appearance and can be easily mistaken for a real weapon. Do not point them at anyone.

• The costume should be highly visible at night.

• Purchase extra batteries for light sources that will be used for outside. Halloween activities. This includes fully charging flashlights.

• Consider using LED lights and glow sticks in pumpkins and other similar devices instead of candles.

• Consider alternative activities to trick or treating such as events sponsored by entities around the county.
