Halloween Fire Safety Posted on October 28, 2016 at 3:43 pm.Written by MetroSuperAdminUser Pumpkins, costumes and sugar rushes, oh my! Halloween is only a few days away, and we want to make sure you and your little trick-or-treaters stay safe. A recent report from the National Fire Protection Association names Halloween as the fifth highest day of the year for candle fires. Here are a few Halloween fire safety tips: Keep jack o’ lanterns and other decorations with candles away from anything flammable. Hay bales and cornstalks are especially flammable. Use decorations containing candles outside and away from high foot-traffic areas. If you can, try to use battery-powered lights and flashlights instead of open flames. Supervise children around candles. Buy flame resistant costumes. Don’t forget that light bulbs also generate heat. Never drape fabric over a light bulb. Teach your kids the tried-and-true “stop, drop and roll” technique. Metro Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning is the service company you want! Call us today at (423) 616-1025!
