With Halloween less than two weeks away, the Umatilla County Fire District #1 has some fire safety tips to keep the night safe for everyone.

  • Use a battery-operated candle or glow stick in jack-o-lanterns
  • When choosing costumes, stay away from long trailing fabric
  • Teach children to stay away from open flames, including jack-o-lanterns with candles in them.
  • Dried flowers, cornstalks, and crepe paper catch fire easily. Keep all decorations away from open flames and other heat sources like light bulbs and heaters
  • Provide children with flashlights to carry for lighting or glow sticks as part of their costume.
  • Remember to keep exits clear of decorations so nothing blocks escape routes. Make sure all smoke alarms are working
