Monthly Fire Safety Tips: Halloween

Jack-o-27-Lantern

Halloween is a fun, and spooky, time of year for kids.  Make trick-or-treating safe for your little monsters with a few easy safety tips:


-When choosing a costume, stay away from long trailing fabric.  If your child is wearing a mask, make sure the eye holes are large enough so he or she can see out.

-Provide children with flashlights to carry for lighting or glow sticks as part of their costume.  

-Dried flowers, cornstalks, and crepe paper catch fire easily.  Keep all decorations away from open flames and other heat sources like light bulbs and heaters.

-Use a battery-operated candle or glow stick in jack-o-lanterns.  If you use a real candle, use extreme caution.  Decorations are the first thing to ignite in 900 reported home fires each year.  Two of every five of these fires were started by a candle.
