It's ok to be creative and even wear dark clothing, but here are a couple of reminders Tucson fire fighters want parents to remember about costumes.

If the costume contains a mask, make sure the child can see out of it.

A few more trick or treating safety tips firefighters want to remind parents about are:

Bring a flashlight

Do not dart across the road.
