Trick-or-treating could take you several streets away from your house. Avoid long paths by mapping out a route before leaving the house. Stick to paths that you and your child are familiar with to avoid getting lost. Make sure you and your children are in comfortable, well-fitting shoes. Children in dresses should avoid heels, and all shoelaces should be double-tied to avoid tripping in the dark. When sorting through candy at the end of the night, be sure to throw away any candy that is not in its original wrapper, or looks as though it has been opened.

Alright, let's take 10 and smile at one of the smallest firearm in the world . . . a 2 inch gun.

Here's some help getting ready for a safe Halloween. Make sure wigs and beards don't cover your kids' eyes, noses, or mouths. Avoid colored or decorative contact lenses, unless they have been prescribed by an eye doctor for your child. Make sure that any props your kids carry, such as wands or swords, are short and flexible.

Now that we're done telling you how to make Halloween safe and "boring", let's have some fun learning about dining manners around the world. Like in China, belching loudly can be seen as a complement to the chef... it's true!

To help prevent fires in your home, make sure to test smoke detector batteries every month and replace them every year. Have at least one smoke alarm on every floor, near the kitchen and fireplace areas, outside each sleeping area, and in every bedroom. Smoke Detectors work in two ways, some "see" the light created by fire others work by "smelling" the air, each is good in its own way for detecting fires, if you want to learn more then here's a link to all the details on Wikipedia.

Alright, let's go on a world tour and learn some strange laws of different lands.

We'd like to take a moment, actually 58 seconds, to remember the 1 October 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting victims, when a gunman opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival. The gunman fired more than 1,100 rounds, killing 58 people and leaving 851 injured from gunfire and the resulting panic. The shooting occurred between 10:05 and 10:15 p.m. PDT. The incident is the deadliest mass shooting committed by an individual in the United States.

With fall approaching, it is a sure bet that cold and flu season will soon follow bringing the risk of flu illness. Some people will only be mildly sick or miserable for a few days, but for some, flu can be very serious and may even result in hospitalization or death. The CDC estimates the flu has caused between 140,000 and 710,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 and 56,000 deaths annually in the United States since 2010. Some people are at higher risk of serious flu illness. What is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from flu? Get a flu shot! More information at

Emergency Action plans continue this week. Be familiar with alternate routes and transportation out of your area, and remember that your evacuation route may be on foot depending on the type of emergency. If you have animals, identify a place to stay that will accept pets, most public shelters allow only service animals.
Always follow the instructions of local officials. Assemble supplies that are ready for evacuation, both a "go-bag" you can carry when you evacuate on foot or public transportation as well as supplies for traveling longer distances if you have a personal vehicle.

Alright, it's that time of the week, the random video that's just meant to cheer you up.

This week, it's about Emergency Action Plans. Learn the types of disasters that are likely in your community and the local emergency, evacuation, and shelter plans for each specific disaster. Identify several places you could go in an emergency such as a friend's home in another town or a motel. Choose destinations in different directions so that you have options during an emergency.

Okay, that's enough safety for now, so let's watch the daredevil, Super Dave Osborne, take on a death-defying stunt that no one should ever try to recreate.

This week, it's all about preventing you from falling. At any age, people can make changes to lower their risk of falling.

Some tips to help prevent falls outdoors are:
- Wear rubber-soled shoes so you don’t slip.
- Walk on grass when sidewalks are slick.
- Put salt or kitty litter on icy sidewalks.

Some ways to help prevent falls indoors are:
- Keep rooms free of clutter, especially on floors.
- Be sure stairs are well lit and have rails on both sides.
- Use a sturdy step stool with a handrail and wide steps.

You can also do exercises to improve your balance. While holding the back of a chair, sink, or counter:
- Stand on one leg at a time for a minute and then slowly increase the time.
- Try to balance with your eyes closed or without holding on.
- Stand on your toes for a count of 10, and then rock back on your heels for a count of 10.
- Make a big circle to the left with your hips, and then to the right. Do not move your shoulders or feet. Repeat five times.

Alright, you've learned some tricks to stay upright, now let's watch these two lads play with a massager and make silly faces!

This week, some BBQ safety for the end of summer from
When using a gas grill, if you smell gas, turn off the gas tank and burners. If the leak stops immediately, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it again. If the smell continues, move away from the grill and call the fire department immediately. Do not move the grill.

There are several ways to get the charcoal ready to use. Charcoal chimney starters allow you to start the charcoal using newspaper as a fuel. If you use a starter fluid, use only charcoal starter fluid. Never add charcoal fluid or any other flammable liquids to the fire. Keep charcoal fluid out of the reach of children and away from heat sources. There are also electric charcoal starters, which do not use fire. Be sure to use an extension cord for outdoor use. When you are finished grilling, let the coals completely cool before disposing in a metal container.

Propane and charcoal BBQ grills should only be used outdoors. The grill should be placed well away from the home, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches. Keep children and pets away from the grill area. Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grills and in trays below the grill. Never leave your grill unattended.

Don't forget, next Monday, 3 September 2018, is Labor Day. The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union.

Excessive sweating reduces salt levels in the body, which can result in heat cramps. Heat cramps are muscle spasms that usually affect the legs or abdominal muscles, often after physical activity. The best way to avoid a heat-related illness is to limit exposure outdoors during hot days. Air conditioning is the best way to cool off. Workers or athletes with pain or spasms in the abdomen, arms or legs should not return to work for a few hours. Instead:
- Wear loose, lightweight clothing and a hat
- Pace yourself when you run or otherwise exert your body
- Sit or lie down in the shade
- Stretch affected muscles
- Drink cool water or a sports drink
- Drink more liquid than you think you need and avoid alcohol
- Replace salt lost from sweating by drinking fruit juice or sports drinks
- Avoid spending time outdoors during the hottest part of the day, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- Wear sunscreen; sunburn affects the body's ability to cool itself
- Seek medical attention if you have heart problems or if the cramps don't get better in an hour

For today, we have a sweet story about a cop, a lemonade stand, and a little girl with a goal.
