Fire Safey Tips to Keep Kids Safe this Halloween

10/23/2017 (Permalink)

Creative costumes, pumpkin carving, and spooky decorations all make Halloween fun for the kids. But what could spoil a good time more than a fire accident?!

NFPA.org provides a few simple fire safety tips to help keep the kids out of fire danger on Halloween.

  • Keep costumes flame-resistant or flame-retardant. And for home-made costumes, choose materials that will not easily ignite.
  • Many fall themed decorations, like cornstalks and dried flowers are highly flammable. Always keep them away from open flames.
  • Use a battery operated light inside of carved pumpkins instead of a real candle.
  • Keep pathways and exits clear of decorations so that nothing is blocking escape routes.
  • Stress to the kids the importance of staying away from open flames.
  • Review and practice with the kids how to stop, drop, and roll just in case their clothing would catch on fire.
