TRICK-OR-TREATING is a fun Halloween
tradition for children and adults, but while
you are hanging up your decorations, make
sure you are providing a safe environment
for the families in your neighborhood.
Halloween decorations can pose the risk
of an accident on your property if not displayed properly. Here are some tips from
Ameriprise Auto & Home Insurance to keep
your yard inviting and hazard free.
■ Keep your sidewalks and steps clear of
debris, decorations and extension cords.
■ Have an easily recognizable path
leading to and from the front door.
■ Avoid using decorative obstacles
(spider webs) for kids to walk through.
■ Illuminate your yard, walkway and
pumpkins with LED lights.
If a non;family member is injured on
your property, your home insurance may
provide liability coverage for the injuries
or property damage that occurred. Make
sure your liability insurance limits
are enough to protect your assets.
If you have investments, savings or
additional property worth more
than your current home
insurance liability limits, you
may want to purchase an
excess liability policy, often
called an umbrella policy.
For more information about coverages available through Ameriprise
Auto & Home Insurance, go to
Costco.com and search ”protect,”
or call toll-free 1;888;404;5365.
