Candy X-ray

Parents have the option to get their children’s candy X-rayed in the Ramstein PAX Terminal lobby from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 31.



• Parents should have their children wear appropriate reflective clothing and use a flashlight or glow stick.

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

• Costumes shouldn’t include high heel shoes or long dangling pieces that could trip your child.



• Children should always be accompanied by a responsible adult. If a group of children will go together, two or three selected parents should go along with them to supervise.

• Advise children to use sidewalks and pedestrian crossings where available and to look both ways before crossing the street.

• Children must never go into a stranger’s house. They should also not ring anyone’s doorbell for treats unless their parents are with them.

• Parents should always keep children within sight.
