Drivers are advised to slow down and to be especially cautious when driving on Oct. 31 during official trick-or-treating hours from 6 to 8 p.m.

Children, likewise, should be advised by adults to only cross at crosswalks, to never dart out from between parked cars or storage units, to wear reflective, light-colored costumes that don’t restrict vision or movement, and to stick together with their friends — or in the case of children younger than 12 — with an adult.

Trick-or-treaters should also be told to never enter housing residences. Housing occupants will set up trick-or-treat stations at stairwell entrances.

In the event that parents and children become separated during trick-or-treating, meet-up points for lost children will be set up at the following locations:
• Clay Kaserne – Newman Village bus stop
• Aukamm – South entrance to the housing area
• Crestview – Gazebo behind the DoDEA bus stop
• Hainerberg – USO Pavilion
