Halloween is one of the most exciting holidays of the year. However, to help ensure Halloween is a great night for everyone, property owners must do their part and keep their premises safe for trick-or-treaters. Please continue reading for some important Halloween safety tips for property owners in Florida.
Halloween Safety Tips | Keeping Your Property Safe
Every homeowner owes it to trick-or-treaters to help ensure their safety. There are many actions you can take to help ensure Halloween is safe for all. They are as follows:
- Ensure your driveway, walkways, and front yard are sufficiently lit so trick-or-treaters can see where they’re walking
- Any jack-o-lantern that uses real candles should be kept away from walking paths, as if tipped over, they can cause a fire
- Ensure your lighting is grounded
- Do not hand out spoiled or expired candy or treats
- Do not place Halloween decorations in a way that may pose a hazard to trick-or-treaters
- Keep pets locked in another room
