QNHCH Offers Halloween Safety Tips

Kids in Halloween costumes

Queen’s North Hawai’i Community Hospital reminds everyone to follow these tips for a safe Halloween:

Halloween Preparation

  • Plan a Halloween party instead of trick-or-treating—or attend a community event
  • Chose comfortable costumes and shoes that do not restrict movement
  • Avoid dark-colored costumes
  • Use make-up rather than a mask
  • Make sure costumes are fire proof or treated with fire retardant
  • Use reflective fabric or tape to improve visibility

Halloween Day

  • Turn on exterior lights and remove objects that could cause tripping
  • Avoid trick-or-treating alone – stay with an adult and in groups
  • Remind kids to steer clear of strangers
  • Start early in the evening and stay in your own neighborhood
  • Carry a flashlight or a light stick and a cell phone
  • Stay in well-lit areas
  • Walk on sidewalks and cross at corners or lights; do not cross mid-block
  • Avoid dark areas and houses
  • Never enter a home without parental permission, even if in a group
  • Inspect Halloween treats before letting kids eat them
  • Eat only treats that are sealed and/or in original packaging
  • If you see something suspicious, say something – call 911
