Halloween Safety: Costumes, Candy & Clutter
Trick-or-treating and costumes are fun and festive. But they can also be extremely dangerous... even life-threatening.

Costumes can be restrictive to your little one's sight and eye line, and certain costumes may be difficult for drivers to see. If your child chooses a dark-colored costume, you may want to invest in some reflective tape just in case.

Also, make sure all hoses and tools are put away out of harms way.

In this segment of ER 101, Dr. Bret Nicks shares these and many other important safety tips and tricks to make sure your Halloween is a treat.
