Information sent on behalf of Humberside Fire & Rescue

Avoid Halloween becoming a nightmare by following the simple tips on our website. CLICK HERE

Homeowners should be aware of what they can do to get involved in the fun safely or how to decrease the chance of 'Trick or Treaters' visiting your property:

• Turn on outdoor lights, and replace burnt-out bulbs
• Remove items from your drive or porch that might trip a child
• Sweep wet leaves from your steps and driveway
• Use an alternative to candles in your pumpkins, such as a torch, LED or a battery-operated candle
• Remember that some children have food allergies. Consider giving other simple treats such as stickers, pens or a yo-yo
• Put a polite notice on your door if you do not wish to have trick or treat visitors

With a little bit of thought and respect for those at both ends of the age spectrum, local communities can enjoy the evening safely.
