Safety tips to remember for a fun and safe Halloween. From what costumes kids wear, to common tips on staying safe while treating from house to house.

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. 

Size matters in costumes, from capes to pants to footwear make sure the costume fits well so the child does not trip or fall.

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

Never trick-or-treat alone, adults should always accompany children.

Attach reflective tape or lights to costumes or bags so drivers can see the children.

Bring a flashlight

Do not dart across the road.

Stay on sidewalks, pathways and in some cases driveways.
