10/29/2010 - MAXWELL-GUNTER AIR FORCE BASE, Ala. -- The Maxwell Air Force Base, Gunter Annex community will observe Halloween from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 30.

That night, children will be going door-to-door throughout Maxwell-Gunter housing areas trick-or-treating in search of candy and fun. The safety of the children is a priority. The 42nd Security Forces Squadron and volunteers from other organizations will be in Maxwell-Gunter neighborhoods to ensure their safety and that of all participants involved.
To make Halloween a safe night, please consider the following tips:

Ensure costumes are flame retardant.

· Keep costumes short enough to prevent tripping and falling.

· Try to use makeup instead of masks. Masks can be hot,
uncomfortable and can obstruct vision.

· Children should wear light colors or put reflective tape on their costumes for visibility.

· Trick-or-treaters should always be in groups or accompanied by parents.

· Children shouldn't enter a stranger's house or car.

· Children shouldn't eat their treats until they return home.

· Inspect treats at home in a well-lit area.

· Only eat unopened candies in original wrappers. Do not forget to inspect fruit for anything suspicious.

These are just a few things to help make Halloween a safe night. Housing residents wishing to give candy to trick-or-treaters should turn on their porch lights.
