Halloween will be here in less than a week and, despite it’s fun nature, there are many unique hazards associated with this unique holiday.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have a list of excellent health safety tips here. Also, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has an exhaustive list of safety and health tips here.

Beyond that, here are a few reminders on the property and casualty side of safety.

  • Make sure any driving done is completely sober and your lights are on.
  • Keep jack-o-lanterns at least 5 feet away from any flammable materials.
  • Make sure decorations don’t impede walkways.
  • Make sure decorations are not near open flames.
  • Check all wiring on lights and electronics, immediately discard any which have exposed wires.
  • Remember that “inflammable” and “flammable” mean the same thing: it will burn quickly. Treat those materials accordingly.

We here at the Eddie Arriola Insurance Agency hope you have a healthy, safe, and awesome Halloween!
