- Replace Candles in Your Jack-O-Lanterns
You can use either LED faux light bulbs or even glow sticks not only is it much safer to use in the dried out pumpkin but it has a really cool look.
- Tighten Those Railings
Fixing wobbly or broken porch railings is a trick-or-treat safety must, as they can cause severe injuries if anyone leans on them a little too hard. Hire a contractor or handyman to fix the problem before your guests arrive.
- Help Clear Your Curb
Reduce risks to little pedestrians by clearing parked cars from the curb for better visibility and placing a reflective “Watch for Children” sign at the edge of the road. On busy streets, consider having adults take turns maintaining safety in the street with a hand-held traffic control light.
- Clear Path Lighting
Lead the way to your front door with clear lighting that helps your guest find the way. Make sure nothing is blocking the path either.
