Insurance Baton Rouge

safetyDid you know that Halloween is the second highest grossing commercial holiday after Christmas?  Did you also know that children are more likely to be hit by a car and killed on Halloween than on any other day of the year?  Kids love to dress up, get together with friends, and go door-to-door hoping to find the full size candy bar, so keep them safe by doing a little pre-planning. Here are some pointers for ensuring your house is a safe place for trick-or-treaters on October 31.

Keep Kids Safe

·         Never go into a strangers home

·         Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision

·         Don’t eat homemade candy unless you know the family

·         Wear reflective clothing

·         Have a flash light

·         Look at all wrapped candy, if it has been opened toss it out

·         Develop a route with your parents

·         Go in a group of kids

·         Set a curfew

 

Safety For Pets

Make sure your pet is in a safe and comfortable space or take them to a secure, relaxing location for the evening.

 

Home Safety

·         Clean up your yard

·         Make a clear well illuminated path to your door

·         Remember that a lot of Halloween decorations like dried flowers, straw and crepe paper are highly flammable. Make sure to keep your decorations away from all open flames

·         Make sure all outside lights are in good working order

·         If you have a large display make sure electric cords are taped or secure to prevent tripping

·         Practice indoor fire safety by checking all smoke detectors. Make sure candles are placed in a secure area

·         Make sure windows and doors are locked at all times

·         It’s never a good idea to answer the door after a certain time
