Halloween Safety Tips:
Are Your Halloween Traditions a Trick or a Treat?
Costumes can catch fire! Avoid costumes with billowing or long trailing fabric. If you are making your own costumes, choose fire-resistant materials.
Never use electrical products outdoors that are marked "for indoor use." You could get shocked - or worse!
Dried flowers, cornstalks, hay, and crepe paper are highly flammable. Keep them away from open flames and other heat sources - including light bulbs and heaters.
Never block exits or escape routes.
Always inspect each decoration before use and discard any with cracked, frayed, or bare wires.
Use only electrical lights and decorations that are approved for safe use by a nationally tested laboratory such as UL, Intertek (ETL), or CSA.
Always turn off electrical decorations and extinguish any open flames before leaving home or going to bed.
Use a flashlight or battery-operated candles in a jack-o-lantern. If you must use a real candle, use extreme caution as it can start a fire or burn someone.
