DON’T LET FIRE TRICK YOU THIS HALLOWEEN
- Do not place candles on porches, in walkways, or near combustible materials. A fire could start, or children’s clothing could ignite and burn.
- Keep all decorations away from light bulbs and open flames.
- Keep matches, lighters and open flames away from children’s reach.
- Use flame-retardant costumes and decorations. If you are purchasing a costume look for labels that the costume is flame retardant.
- Dress trick-or-treaters in light-colored clothing so that they may be seen easily while walking along streets.
- Apply a natural mask using cosmetics rather than having trick-or-treaters wear a mask which might restrict breathing and obscure vision. If a mask is used, make sure it fits securely and has eye holes large enough to allow full vision.
- Trick-or-treaters should only go to homes where residents have outside lights on. Children should not enter homes or apartments unless accompanied by an adult.
- An adult should be present while children are trick-or-treating, and at all children’s parties.
- Use flashlights or disposable chemical light sticks in Jack-O-Lanterns.
- Remind children not to eat any of their treats before they get home. An adult should examine all treats carefully for evidence of tampering before allowing children to eat them.
- When driving on Halloween – BE EXTRA CAREFUL AND BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR EXCITED TRICK-OR-TREATERS!
Have a happy and safe Halloween!
