Preventing Fires in the Fall
Everyone loves fall in North Texas! The temperature drops a bit, you can buy pumpkin spice everything and it’s a new decorating theme!
Haystacks, dried cornstalks, silly scarecrows, and jack-o-lanterns placed among big pots of mums make fantastic yard décor. But they can also be fire risks so it’s important to be aware and take steps like these to prevent a fall fire in Park Cities.
All jack-o-lanterns should have battery operated candles or glow sticks instead of a live flame.
Any paper or dried vegetable décor should be kept away from heat sources like fire pits, light bulbs or heaters.
When Halloween comes around, make sure the walkways are clear so trick-or-treaters with flowing costumes stay safe.
October is Fire Prevention Month so a great time to check all your smoke alarms to make sure they are working properly and go through your family escape plan once again so everyone knows what to do.
If you don’t have one yet – you can download a template from the National Fire Prevention Association’s website where there you'll find lots of fire safety information and resources for kids.
At SERVPRO of Park Cities, we wish you and your families a fun fall and happy Halloween!
Remember that if anything scary happens we are here around the clock to help.
