Halloween is a time for fun and frights, but behind the festivities lurk hidden dangers – including fire hazards.

From 2000 to 2004, decoration fires accounted for an estimated 1,610 reported home structure fires per year, the majority involving candles as the heat source, and causing seven civilian deaths, 60 civilian injuries and $24.9 million in direct property damage per year.

It goes without saying that Allied Universal wants you to ‘BE SAFE’ – no matter how you’re celebrating the holiday. Whether you’re hosting a party or donning a creative costume to trick-or-treat, we hope you’ll follow these safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association.
