Sioux Falls Fire Rescue Chief Jim Sideras offers tips on making this Halloween safe for your children.

Several suggestions:

1. Purchase costumes that are made of flame retardant material.

2. Make sure your child's costume fits properly.

3. If a mask is worn, make sure that the eye holes are big enough.

Jim Sideras says picking out your child's costume should be fun and exciting.  Take the time to make it a safe Halloween!
