Halloween Safety Tips:

Are Your Halloween Traditions a Trick or a Treat?

 

Trick:

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. 

Treat:

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.
