HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - We are one day away from ghosts and goblins invading the streets of neighborhoods, and while Halloween can be fun, it can also be dangerous. We have some steps you can take to make sure your family has a safe Halloween.

If you are drive, avoid neighborhood cut threws, and drive slowly. If you plan on drinking, make sure you have a designated driver.

Parents are urged to talk to their kids about precautions to stay safe. Never go into a strangers house, and make sure to check all candy for tampering before eating it.

President and CEO of SafeKids Worldwide, Inc., Kate Carr says, "Encourage your kids to be seen, so on their costumes add a little bit of reflective tape or a glow stick, or have them carry a flash light. Something that will make them visible to drivers."

Another good idea is to make a plan for the night and make sure everyone you are with is on the same page.

Taking a few extra precautions will help make sure your Halloween will remain a fun time.
