Halloween - Fun & Scary

October is here. That means Halloween is close at hand. It is a great time for families and friends to gather, carve pumpkins and eat a lot of candy. But, there are a few safety tips you need to follow during this time of year. Because, Halloween can be fun & scary, but really scary if you do not follow simple Fire Safety tips.

Make Halloween safe for your little monsters!

Here are five simple Halloween Fire Safety tips:

1.) Use a battery-operated candle or glow-stick in your jack-o-lanterns, instead of regular candles.

2.) When choosing costumes, stay away from long trailing flammable fabrics.

3.) Dried flowers, cornstalks, crepe paper and plastic can catch fire easily. Keep all of your decorations away from heat sources, including candles, light-bulbs and heaters.

4.) Teach children to stay far away from open flames, including candles in jack-o-lanterns, bonfires and tiki-torches.

5.) Remember to always keep decorations away from every exit, to not block escape routes. And make sure all smoke alarms in the home are working properly.

Following these simple but effective Fire Safety Tips will help insure that your little monsters have a safe, fun and memorable Halloween.
