Re: Halloween Safety tips for Homeowners…
If your house is one of the many homes participating in the Halloween festivities, turn on your porch light so children will know it is all right to visit your home. If you are placing a Jack-O-Lantern on your porch, place a glow stick inside instead of a candle. Hand out only commercially wrapped candy. Never invite children into your home and ensure that your pets are secured and can’t charge little ones at your door (even if you believe they won’t bite there is still the potential for it. Besides, some kids are scared of dogs). Also, maintain clear walkways that are free from obstruction. And if using candles, keep them far away from the path of children. Finally, immediately notify law enforcement of any suspicious activity. But most importantly, enjoy all the fun!!
