Halloween Safety Tips
Halloween is just around the corner, we want you and your family to be safe while out this season. When choosing a costume, be sure that it is flame retardant. Any loose or non- flame retardant materials can catch fire easily. Be sure that you can see clearly avoid masks that limit your field of vision to reduce trip hazards. Costumes tend to be dark in color making them harder to see while driving.
Consider lighting your jack-o-lantern with LED battery operated candles instead of an actual candle. Electronic candles are better to decorate with than actual candles to avoid catching decorations on fire. Dried cornstalks and crepe paper decorations are especially susceptible to ignite around flames. Keep these materials away from heat sources such as space heaters or open flame candles. Two of every five fires reported were because decorations caught fire in the home according to the NFPA. Above all never leave a candle or open fire unattended.
