PORT WENTWORTH, GA (WTOC) -

Port Wentworth will be observing Halloween on Oct. 31 from 6-10 p.m.

People are advised to please watch for children walking on or near the roadway in neighborhoods at that time.

Extra police units will be on hand to help keep everyone safe.

The Port Wentworth police would like to pass along some safety tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Plan costumes that are bright and reflective and make sure that shoes fit well and that costumes are short enough to prevent tripping.

Consider adding reflective tape to costumes or bags for greater visibility.

Consider non-toxic makeup and decorative hats as safer alternatives to masks.

When shopping for costumes and accessories, look for and purchase those with a label clearly indicating they are flame retardant.

Make sure all children and escorts have flashlights with fresh batteries.

Teach children how to call 9-1-1 or their local emergency number if they have an emergency or become lost.
