NBC Right Now -  It's the time kids can be anything they want to be, but it's up to adults to make sure their Halloween costumes and accessories don't get in the way of their fun.

Firefighters say to stay away from flowy costumes and hard to see masks to prevent tripping and knocking over decorations that could start a fire. 

Captain Nathan Rave with the Kennewick Fire Department suggests homeowners use a battery powered light in a jack-o-lantern instead of a lit candle.  

"Also with costumes, just make sure they are not going to hinder movement and not really loose. So, if they do get around candles they won't catch fire," said Rave.

Firefighters also say to put reflective stickers on costumes and glow sticks are great for kids to carry around for extra light.

Parents should also carry around a flashlight and reflective clothing while walking with their kids.
