For further detailed information on bonfire and firework safety you can download our leaflet here.
Only buy fireworks with a CE mark – this is the safety standard that all fireworks should meet.
Follow the instructions on each firework – read them in daylight or by torchlight, never by a naked flame.
Keep pets indoors.
Ensure you have finished celebrating with your fireworks by 11pm.
Never keep fireworks in your pocket.
Keep fireworks in a closed box, safely away from children and combustibles. When using them, only light one at a time.
Never return to a lit firework.
Direct fireworks away from any spectators.
If you or people you are with are using sparklers. Always ensure they use them whilst wearing a glove.
Take care disposing of fireworks. Dispose of them by placing them in a bucket of water.
Don’t mess around with or throw lit fireworks.
