The National Fire Protection Association has the following fire precaution safety tips: www.nfpa.org/safety-information/for-consumers/holidays/halloween-safety.
Residents are encouraged to keep the following safety tips in mind.
- Plan costumes that are bright and reflective. Make sure shoes fit well, and costumes are short enough to prevent tripping, entanglement or contact with flame.
- Consider using a flashlight or glow stick instead of a candle to light pumpkins. If candles are used, a votive variety is recommended.
