It's Halloween again!
All homeowners have a serious obligation on this fun night: If you expect trick-or-treaters, you must make sure the path to your door is a safe one.
Make sure there is nothing for the little ghosts and goblins to trip over. If you have decorated the front yard with decorations like light-up pumpkins and animated figures, relocate the electrical cords so they’re not in anyone’s way.
Light the way to your door:
Make sure the path to your house is bright enough for trick-or-treaters to approach safely. It may seem more in keeping with the mood of this spooky night to switch off your porch light, but it’s much safer — not to mention more inviting — to keep it on.
Flammable decorations and costumes:
Whether vandals or accidents are to blame, there are many more fires on Halloween than a typical October night, according to Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Holiday decorations are often quite flammable. Materials such as paper, hay, and dried cornstalks can be ignited by spotlights and candles. DON'T use candles - illuminate using LED tea lights.
Protect your pets:
Some Halloween costumes can be frightening to your dogs or cats. It’s good sense to contain your pets in an secure indoor space for their safety as well as your little guests.
Check the treat bag:
Examine your child's treats. Make sure they are safe for them to eat. The best and safest treats are those which are factory sealed.
Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!
