Whether you’re trick-or-treating, knocking on doors, or dressing up as ghosts, goblins or a player from Squid Game, here are some safety tips to keep you, your family, and your home safe this Halloween.

Creepy Ghost

Hot Costumers

Costumes can catch on fire! Avoid costumes with long, billowing trailing fabric. Also, try choosing costumes made of fire-resistant materials.

Creepy Skull and Crossbones


Don’t use electrical products marked “for indoor use” outdoors. You could just get a nasty shock or worse!

Creepy Witches Hat

High and Dry

Decorations like dried flowers, cornstalks, hay and crêpe paper are highly flammable. Keep them away from open flames and heat sources, including light bulbs.

Creepy Hanging Spider

Free and Clear

Keep exits, fire escape routes and entry ways clear.

Connection Inspection

Inspect each decoration before use and discard any with cracked, frayed, and or is showing bare wires.

Lollipop Swirl

Power Off

Always turn off electrical decorations and extinguish any open flames before leaving your home and before going to bed.

Guiding Lights

Use a flashlight or battery operated candles in jack-o-lanterns. If you must use real candles, use with extreme caution as it can start a fire or burn someone.
