Scary Good And Simple Halloween Safety Tips
For a frightfully safe Halloween here are some simple safety tips:
Parents remind your little ghosts and goblins to walk between homes – no running! Nothing is worse than a skinned knee or worse to ruin the Halloween fun.
It’s out with candles and in with led candles, tea lights and strings of Halloween lights strung around you porch. The U.S. Fire Administration says to make sure a recognized lab has tested any decorative lights you plan to use, and also to make sure the lights’ sockets; wires and connectors are in good working order before use. Make sure the walkway to the front door is well lit.
Clean up your yard, make sure there are no obstacles to trip up little feet. Make sure any yard décor is well lit and out of the pathway to the front door.
Protect your pets from the festivities: leaving your dog or cat in a back room of the house will keep them calmer throughout the evening.
Check your smoke alarms to help make sure they’re in good working order. Decorations can be flammable, so keep them away from open flames.
