KY Fire Commission Offers Halloween Safety Tips

Oct 30, 2013

Children look forward to the fun and excitement of Halloween, but the Kentucky Fire Commission says everyone should remember to celebrate safely.

The commission's is advising trick or treaters to Wear bright, reflective and flame-resistant costumes and add reflective tape to be visible to drivers.

Stay in a group, and carry a cell phone and flashlight.

Don't go inside homes or cars for treats.

Responsible adults should accompany young children, while older kids should let someone know where they are going and when they'll return.

Be careful with candles near your door and check pathways to make sure they're clear. Also restrain pets from jumping or nipping at trick-or-treaters.
