Alright kiddies, as Halloween weekend draws near I feel it’s important to pass along the Los Angeles Fire Department Halloween Safety Tips. With many sections like “Before Halloween”, “Fun Alternatives” and “After Trick-or-Treating” this website guarantees you a fun, yet safe night.
Some of my favorites are:
ï When shopping for costumes, wigs and accessories, purchase only those with a label indicating they are flame resistant.
ï Think twice before using simulated knives, guns or swords. If such props must be used, be certain they do not appear authentic and are soft and flexible to prevent injury.
ï Consider purchasing individually packaged healthy food alternatives (or safe non-food treats) for those who visit your home
ï Learn or review CPR skills to aid someone who is choking or having a heart attack.
Ok, now that you know – be safe and have fun!
