HAPPY HALLOWEEN 2016

Monday, October 31, 2016  The Huntersville Fire Department would like to wish you a HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Below are some tips to make sure your Halloween is fun and SAFE!

COSTUMES:
-Make sure the costume is ‘Flame resistant’ or will not easily burn. If you are making the costume avoid materials that easily ignite. Use flame resistant materials such as polyester and nylon.
- Avoid dark colored costume material if at all possible.
- If your child is wearing a mask, please make sure the eye holes are large enough to provide full field of vision to prevent tripping, falling and injury.
- Provide your child with a flash and/or glow light as part of their costumes.
- Remind your child to stay away from open fires (fire pits, bon fires, luminaries, etc).
- Review with your child what to do if their costume catches on fire: STOP – DROP – COVER YOUR FACE – ROLL THE FIRE OUT!

DECORATIONS AT HOME:
- Keep all exits clear of decorations so nothing blocks your escape routes in an emergency.
- Remember identify TWO ways out of your home in an emergency.
- Use a flash light or battery operated candle for your jack-o-lantern. - Avoid using real candles if at all possible. If you use a candle in your pumpkin, be sure to place the lit pumpkin well away from anything that can burn (drapes, curtains, decorations). Try to keep the jack-o-lantern away from walkways, sidewalks and trick-or-treaters.

PARENTS:
- Talk to your child about safety prior to starting. Talk about traffic caution, crossing the street at corners only, using sidewalks, walk facing traffic if at all possible, stranger danger and to NEVER walk inside a house - stay outside on the porch or sidewalk.
- Accompany your child while they trick-or-treat. Make sure a responsible adult is present with all trick-or-treaters and that the span of control is not too large to effectively manage.
- If driving on Halloween, drive slower than normal, beware of excited children who may dart out into traffic without looking. Avoid using your cell phone (this includes TEXTING). Popular trick-or-treating times are 5:30-9:30pm.
- Examine all treats before your kids eat them. Check for choking hazards and/or tampering.

A scary statistic – on Halloween, kids are twice as likely to be hit by a vehicle than any other night of the year. Let’s not let that happen here in Huntersville. Be safe tonight and make sure our kids have a fun, memorable and spooktacular time!
