Halloween Decoration Fire Safety Tips

Halloween Decoration Fire Safety Tips

As fall is ushered in with cooler temperatures and falling leaves, many families will celebrate Halloween. Unfortunately, many Halloween decorations can be fire hazards, so we have a few tips to help you enjoy the season while keeping safe.

Jack-o-Lanterns and fire safety

With a light flickering inside the pumpkin, fun and eerie images glow through the carvings. However, using a candle inside the pumpkin can be a real fire hazard, especially if the pumpkin could get knocked over into dry leaves or other decorations. Rather than using a candle, utilize an LED light or electric to create the ghostly glow from your pumpkin.

Decorations safety for Halloween

Hay bales, corn stalks and paper decorations create a fall atmosphere, but this decor is quite flammable. Keep any source of flame or heat at least 3 feet away for safety.

Using Candles safely during Halloween

Nothing quite conveys a spooky atmosphere the way the flickering light from a candle does, making candles popular for the season. However, having an open flame around decorations, in paper bag luminaries lining a driveway or sidewalk or on the porch where trick-o-treaters can brush up against them is very dangerous. Rather than traditional candles, consider electric or LED lights to create a similar effect without the fire hazard.

Keeping in mind these three simple tips will help you safely decorate your home.
