We’re just a few days away from Halloween and the Copperas Cove Fire Department wants to help you and your family stay safe this season with some tips to help make your Halloween safer for everyone. Also, Copperas Cove officials recommend that if you plan on going door-to-door trick or treating, that it be done between the hours of 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM on Halloween night.


1

Battery Powered Candles & Flashlights

 

 

Instead of using flames for your jack-o-lanterns which could burn kids or set their costumes on fire, use battery powered candles and flashlights to prevent kids from getting burned.

Keep All Matches & Lighters Locked Away

 

 

Don’t let the kids get within reach of matches or lighters. Make sure you store them in high places where they can’t be reached.

4

Choose A Flame Resistant Costume

 

 

Avoid costumes where the fabric may dangle or hang loosely off your kids that could rub against a flame and catch fire. Keep a close eye on your child so because even “flame-resistant” fabric can burn.

Let Kids Carry A Flashlight

 

 

Don’t let kids carry lit candles! Let them carry flashlights and make sure you use them to check porches and yards before approaching homes seeking candy.

Adult Supervision At All Times

 

 

Parents make sure you keep an eye out for your kids at all times and inspect all candies and treats when they get home, and check your treats too!
