STOW — State Fire Marshal Peter J. Ostroskey offers fire safety tips for celebrating Halloween including using battery-operated tea lights in pumpkins instead of candles. More children are injured by cars than fire on Halloween, so it’s important for children to be visible and to practice pedestrian safety. Drivers should use extra caution; drive more slowly and watch for children who may forget to cross at corners and use crosswalks.
Reminder: Be Careful with Halloween Costumes, Decorations and Trick-or-Treating
