Halloween Homeowner Safety Tips

    “When you think of Halloween, you probably think about candy, costumes, haunted houses, and parties. However, homeowners need to think a little deeper to make sure their home stays safe this Halloween.”

    Homeowner Safety Tips:

    -Turn on your porch light if you want trick-or-treaters! Don’t forget to provide lighting outside as well.

    -Get rid of any tripping hazards in the walkway.

    -Remove slipping hazards like wet leaves from the steps and sidewalk.

    -Try to use battery powered lights in jack-o-lanters instead of candles. If you use a candle, set it out of the walk way to prevent accidental fires.

    -Keep dried leaves and cornstalks away from flames and heat sources.

    -Don’t drape decorative fabric over a light bulb.

    -Make sure paper or cloth is kept away from burning candles.

    -Do not overload outlets or extension cords with lighting or special effects.

    -Avoid using luminaries (small candles inside decorative paper bags) as lighting.

    -Keep pets locked away or indoors to protect them from vehicles or incidents with trick-or-treaters.
