Keep Your Home Safe This Halloween

In just a few days, kids of all ages will begin swarming neighborhoods in Bethlehem, PA, searching for the best king-size candy bars. Trick-or-treating is a fun time for all involved, as children get candy and adults get to see kids’ costumes. Make sure Halloween at your home is fun and doesn’t result in an accident. We’ve compiled a short list of tips for staying safe on October 31.

Keeping Your Home Safe

Halloween decorations add to the fun festivities, but they also can create safety hazards. As you put up ghost, ghouls, and goblins, don’t forget to make sure:

  • your yard is clear of decorations that trick-or-treaters could trip over
  • all lit jack-o-lanterns are kept away from flammable items
  • your indoor decorations aren’t fire hazards

Safety doesn’t need to impede your decorating efforts this October, but it should be kept in mind whenever you put a decoration up.

Insuring Your Home Against Fire

Additionally, you might want to review your home insurance for coverage against fires. Even if you’re extremely cautious when decorating, a turned-over jack-o-lantern or burnt pumpkin seeds could start a fire. By maintaining a good home insurance policy, you can financially protect yourself from fires started by covered causes.
