Halloween Candle Safety Tips

Fire safety tips for Halloween


From creepy candelabras to jack-o-lanterns, a candle adds the final spooky touch for the perfect Halloween ambiance.  By following a few safety tips, you will ensure your Halloween doesn’t go up in flames.

  • Keep candles away from materials that can catch fire such as fabrics, books, paper, or decorations such as corn husks, dried flowers, and crepe paper.
  • Use a sturdy candle holder. Even better, use a glass jar candle.
  • Use long match sticks when lighting the candle in your jack-o-lantern.
  • Keep children and pets away from burning candles.
  • Remember to keep exits clear, and make sure that all smoke detectors are functional.
  • Consider a wax melt or oil warmer as an alternative to an open flame candle.
