Halloween Safety - #htt by West Park Hospital

(Cody, Wyo.) – From sugary treats to painted faces, Halloween is a fun-filled holiday for the kiddos (and adults)! Yet every year, kids are injured — sometimes seriously. To keep the trick-or-treaters in your family safe this Halloween, follow these tips to ensure a Spooktacular time! Here’s your Health Tip Tuesday (#htt)! - Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult. - Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you. - Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. - Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you. - Always WALK and don’t run from house to house. - Look both ways before crossing the street. - Use established crosswalks wherever possible. - Only walk on sidewalks whenever possible or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe. - Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid block version, trips, and falls. - Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers. - Enter homes only if you’re with a trusted adult. Only visit well-lit houses. Don’t stop at dark houses. - Never accept rides from strangers.
