Stay safe this Halloween

Halloween is a busy time for all the emergency services

We want you to stay safe when trick or treating by following the ‘Halloween Code’:

  • Always go trick and treating with an adult
  • Only go to houses where you or your friends know the residents
  • Don’t knock on doors where there is a no trick or treat sign
  • Stay in areas that are well lit with street lights – take a torch just incase
  • Stay with your friends – don’t split into smaller groups
  • Don’t talk to strangers on the street
  • Don’t enter any house – always stay on the door step
  • Be careful not to frighten vulnerable people – especially the elderly
  • Be visable
  • Look carefully before crossing the road, even if you’re part of a group
  • Don’t vandalise anything or throw things like eggs and flour. This can cause a great deal of damage and misery. What’s more it can be classed as criminal damage, or even assault, and a night of ‘fun’ could end up with you in trouble with the police
