Tips for a safe Halloween
The City of Toronto
wants children to have a safe, fun Halloween this coming Monday. Toronto Fire
Services is offering the following tips to assist parents in making it a safe
occasion for all.
• Plan costumes that are
bright and reflective. Adding reflective tape or striping to costumes and
trick-or-treat bags provides greater visibility.
• Secure children's
emergency identification (name, address, phone number) inside Halloween attire
or on a bracelet.
• Keep jack-o-lanterns and
hot electric lamps far away from drapes, decorations, flammable materials or
areas where children and pets will be standing or walking.
candles, matches and lighters out of the reach of children. If you use candles
in jack-o-lanterns, try a tea light or short candle in a non-combustible
holder. Place candlelit jack-o-lanterns on sturdy tables away from curtains.
Never leave candles unattended.
Accompany young children when they go out trick-or-treating.
• Carry a
flashlight that has fresh batteries.
• Remind children of traffic safety
rules such as crossing streets at corners - never from between parked cars.
