VERSAILLES, Ky. (AP) Children look forward to the fun and excitement of Halloween, but the Kentucky Fire Commission says everyone should remember to celebrate safely.

The commission's advice:
Wear bright, reflective and flame-resistant costumes and add reflective tape to make trick-or-treaters visible to drivers.

Wear non-toxic makeup instead of a mask, but wash it off afterward to avoid skin irritation.

Stay in a group, and carry a cell phone and flashlight.

Don't go inside homes or cars for treats.

Responsible adults should accompany young children, while older kids should let someone know where they are going and when they'll return.

Parents should inspect treats for spoilage or tampering.

Be careful with candles near your door and check pathways to make sure they're clear. Also restrain pets from jumping or nipping at trick-or-treaters.
