• Parents have the option to get their children’s candy X-rayed at the Ramstein PAX
Terminal Lobby from 6 to 8 p.m.

• Parents are highly encouraged to ensure children wear appropriate reflective clothing as they partake in the evening’s festivities. Flashlight or glow sticks are also recommended.

• Costumes should be made of flame retardant material. If they are homemade, make sure to use either a fire retardant spray or fabric that has been treated with fire retardant.

• Do not include high-heel shoes or long, dangling pieces of costume that your child could trip over.

• Children should always go trick-or-treating accompanied by a responsible adult. If you have a group of children trick-or-treating, the parents should choose two or three parents to go along and keep an eye on things.

• Use sidewalks and pedestrian crossing where available, and look both ways before crossing the street while trick-or-treating.

• Make sure children know they should never  go into a stranger’s house or even ring their door for treats unless it has been approved by a parent. Always make sure a parent is in sight when a child is out knocking on doors and  trick-or-treating. For other safety tips, visit www.halloween-safety.com.
