Halloween Safety Tips by Cal Fire

Tips for choosing the right costumes:
▪ Purchase costumes made of flame-retardant material (Check the label).
▪ Keep hemlines short enough to prevent tripping and avoid loose, baggy sleeves, or billowing skirts.
▪ To be seen easily, costumes should be made of a light-color material.
▪ Use glow-in-the-dark reflective tape on your costume.
▪ Use make-up rather than masks, which could obstruct vision.
Tips for Halloween night:
▪ Use battery powered lights -- never use candles to light jack-o’-lanterns.
▪ Instruct children to stay away from open flames.
▪ Remove objects from the yard that present a hazard to children (garden tools, hoses, etc.).
▪ Be extremely careful with cornstalks and other harvest season items. Keep them away from sources of heat. Don’t let them block doorways or stairs.
▪ Do not allow children to carry sharp sticks or other objects that could cause injury to themselves or to others.
▪ If you are driving on Halloween, take care...watch out for trick-or-treaters who will be too busy to watch out for you.
▪ Closely inspect all candy before allowing children to eat it. Discard any unwrapped treats from a stranger. If in doubt, throw it out.
