Keep Fall Fire Free

Fire Damage Keep Fall Fire Free Have a plan in place to keep damage to a minimum, if it should occur.

The fall season brings cooler temperatures, beautiful colors, and an abundance of outdoor activities. Plan ahead this season to help ensure it is safe and fire-free.

- Fall decorations, like dried flowers and cornstalks, are highly flammable. Keep these and other decorations away from open flames and heat sources, including light bulbs and heaters.

- Keep emergency exits clear of decorations so nothing blocks escape routes.

- Teach children to stay away from open flames. Be sure they know how to stop, drop, and roll if their clothing catches fire.

- Remember safety first when choosing a Halloween costume. Consider avoiding billowing fabric. If you are making your costume, choose material that won’t easily ignite if it comes into contact with heat or a flame.

- It is safest to use a flashlight or battery-operated candle in a jack-o-lantern. Use extreme caution if using a real candle. Place lit pumpkins away from anything that can burn, and out of the way of doorsteps, walkways, and yards.
