In addition to telling kids the dangers of drugs, Midas, who is also a police officer with the Lansford Police Department, stressed the importance of being safe and avoiding strangers during Lansford's Trick Or Treat night, Wed. Oct. 31 from 6 - 8 p.m. He also pointed out a number of Halloween safety tips, such as wearing a bright or reflective costume, visit only people you know, have a parent or guardian check your treats, carry a lighted device and always walk with a responsible adult.
