Halloween is a favorite time of year for young and old alike, but it does come with fire hazards. Following the tips below will ensure that you enjoy a safe Halloween holiday 

Top five Halloween fire safety tips

  • Use a battery-operated candle or glow stick in jack-o-lanterns
  • When choosing costumes, stay away from long trailing fabric
  • Teach children to stay away from open flames, including jack-o-lanterns with candles in them.
  • Dried flowers, cornstalks, and crepe paper catch fire easily. Keep all decorations away from open flames and other heat sources like light bulbs and heaters
  • Provide children with flashlights to carry for lighting or glow sticks as part of their costume. 
  • Remember to keep exits clear of decorations so nothing blocks escape routes. Make sure all smoke alarms are working.

SERVPRO of Fernandina Beach/Jacksonville Northeast wishes you a happy and safe Halloween.
