Fall Safety Tips Happy Halloween from your friends at SERVPRO of Howell, Wall, Spring Lake, Asbury Park.

The autumn season paints the world in rich hues and crisp air, making it the perfect time for outdoor adventures. To ensure your fall remains safe and brimming with fun, consider these essential safety tips:

  1. Fireproof Your Fall Decor:

Fall decorations like dried flowers and cornstalks may add charm, but they're also highly flammable. Keep these and other decorations at a safe distance from open flames, as well as heat sources such as light bulbs and heaters.

  1. Clear Emergency Exits:

Make sure that your festive spirit doesn't block safety exits. Keep emergency exits free from decorations to ensure nothing obstructs escape routes, providing peace of mind for you and your loved ones.

  1. Teach Fire Safety:

Empower children with the knowledge to stay away from open flames. Ensure they understand the essential "stop, drop, and roll" technique in case their clothing catches fire. Fire safety education is a gift that lasts a lifetime.

  1. Choose a Safe Costume:

When selecting Halloween costumes, prioritize safety. Consider avoiding billowing fabrics that can easily catch fire. If you decide to create a costume, opt for materials that are less likely to ignite if exposed to heat or flames.

  1. Illuminate with Caution:

For your jack-o'-lantern, it's safest to use a flashlight or a battery-operated candle. If you prefer a real candle, exercise extreme caution. Never leave it unattended, and be sure to extinguish it when you're not around. Place lit pumpkins away from flammable materials and keep them clear of doorsteps, walkways, and yards.

This fall, as the season unfolds in all its splendor, SERVPRO of Howell, Wall, Spring Lake, Asbury Park wishes you a happy and safe Halloween. Let's celebrate the beauty of fall while ensuring the safety of our loved ones.
