Last year was one of the quietest Halloween's on record for the fire service.
Emergency crews dealt with 133 incidents and there was a 44% reduction in the number of injuries reported.
Assistant Chief Fire Officer, Dale Ashford urged people to be aware of the dangers fireworks can pose.
He told UTV: "I think the message is getting out there, traditionally Halloween is a busy time of year for us but over recent years we have seen a great reduction in the number of calls that we go to.
"That is not an accident, it is because year-on-year we have been speaking to the communities and asking them to take a bit more care to be very careful about their own safety and the safety of their loved ones.
"We want everyone to have a great time, but we want them to do it safely."
Mr Ashford said the fire service was not trying to throw could water over people's fun.
He continued: "If someone calls the fire and rescue service at Halloween it is because they have a genuine concern, they need us or they are worried that something could develop and someone's life or property could be in danger.
"So if we turn up at your Halloween party we are not there to spoil the fun, we need your help to let us get in and deal with the situation get it resolved quickly and then everybody can continue to have a good time."
