Tips for a Spooktacularly Safe Halloween

Tips for a Spooktacularly Safe Halloween

Halloween is filled with fun from candy to costumes to pumpkin patches. But there are more dangers on Halloween night than spooky shadows or witches flying in the night. Consider the following safety tips to have a spooktacular Halloween night:

Outside decorations:
When planning your outdoor decorations, take time to carefully inspect all electrical items. Discard any décor where the wiring appears damaged. Also ensure that all of your decorations are clearly marked for outdoor use, and that all electric cords are out of high-traffic areas where they could pose a tripping hazards. Avoid the risk of electric shock by plugging outdoor décor into circuits that are protected by Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs).

Choosing a costume:
Your children can be exactly what they want to be on Halloween, but it is essential to ensure that costumes are flame-resistant, flame-retardant and/or non-combustible.

Driving on Halloween:
Drive slowly, watching for children in roadways, medians and near curbs. If at all possible, do not drive on Halloween night, and especially do not allow new or inexperienced drivers to frolic around town when there will be so many children out in dark clothes and costumes.

Halloween only comes once a year. Make the night safe and spooktacular for everyone! Happy Halloween from LCEC!
