Halloween Safety Tips https://t.co/oMQxyHUTxL

Halloween Safety Tips:

Halloween is a fun and exciting time of year, but it is also an important time to practice fire and personal safety. The occurrence of fire increases around Halloween due to the use of candles as decorations. According to the National Fire Protection Association, Halloween decorations are the cause of over 1,000 homes fires each year. CAL FIRE would like to remind parents and trick or treaters to practice a few simple safety precautions.

Tips for choosing the right costumes:

• Purchase costumes made of flame resistant or retardant material (Check the label). Fire resistant does not mean fire proof
• Keep hemlines short enough to prevent tripping
• Avoid loose and baggy sleeves. Stay away from billowing or long trailing fabric.
• Use make-up instead of masks which can obstruct vision.
• Use glow in the dark reflective tape on your costume.

Tips for decorating:

• Never use candles to light jack-o’-lanterns, use battery powered lights.
• Instruct children to stay away from open flames.
• Be extremely careful with cornstalks and other harvest season items. Keep them away from sources of heat.
• Keep exits clear of decorations so nothing blocks escape routes

Tips for Halloween Night:

• Children should always go trick-or-treating with a responsible adult.
• If driving, be sure to watch for trick-or-treaters who are too busy to watch for you.
• Provide children with flashlights or glow sticks to carry for lighting and visibility.
• Do not allow children to carry sharp sticks or other objects that could cause injury to others.
• Keep your yard free of tripping hazards, such as garden tools, hoses, etc.
• Closely inspect all candy before allowing children to eat it. Discard any unwrapped treats from a stranger. If in doubt, throw it out.

TED Talk in Norristown

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).
