Did you know that Thanksgiving is the peak day in the United States for home cooking fires? To keep it safe, here are some tips to avoid being a statistic this holiday season.
Plan your haunt
Know what neighborhoods and streets your crew are going to travel. Keep to sidewalks. If there is not a sidewalk, walk on the side of the road facing traffic.
Light up the dark
Take a flashlight or glow sticks for visibility. Avoid dark houses and yards.
Prevent food allergies from spoiling the fun by waiting to eat candy until you return home.
The Youngster Munsters
A responsible adult should accompany young children. Add your contact information to your child’s costume in case you become separated.
Instruct older children to remain in familiar well-lit areas with their friends. Make sure to agree on a specific time they should return home.
