Colorado Springs' fire and police chiefs have issued these Halloween safety tips:

- Trick-or-treaters should be accompanied by a responsible adult and make the rounds in an area that is safe and familiar.

- Children and adults should carry a light or wear a glow stick.

- Lighter-colored costumes are easier for motorists to see. Reflective tape also can be added to costumes to illuminate them at night.

- Stay on sidewalks, cross the street at intersections and do not walk between cars.

- Children should never enter a stranger's home or car. Avoid approaching homes that are dark or that appear to be unoccupied.

- Inspect all treats before allowing your child to eat them. Any item that is not factory-wrapped or appears to have been unwrapped should be discarded. If anything seems suspicious, throw it out.

- Residents handing out candy should make sure their homes are trick-or-treat friendly by clearing the walkway, turning on the porch light and keeping decorations away from candles, light bulbs and heaters.

- Drivers should keep an eye out for little ghosts and goblins.
