Halloween is approaching, and while having fun, you also want to make sure that your property is safe for the trick-or treaters that will be coming. The following are some tips to make this Halloween not only enjoyable, but safe for everyone.
- First and foremost, do not leave any open flames on your property unsupervised. This can include bon fires and candles on your walkway.
- Make sure that your pets are inside and secured so that they are not able to get loose when you open your door. This not only keeps your pets safe, but eliminates the possibility of someone getting injured by your pet.
- Ensure that your decorations are securely and properly hung and cannot fall off or down onto someone. Make sure that any holes in your yard are either roped off or filled in and are not trip hazards.
- Likewise, make sure that if you have any electrical cords running through your yard that they are covered so someone cannot trip and fall over them. This also applies to any tools or toys that may be in your yard. Make sure that your yard is clear from anything that could be a trip hazard.
This is just a short list of some suggestions that you can do to help keep everyone safe on Halloween night. We want everyone to have a safe and happy Halloween!
