Firework Safety

Firework incidents predominately occur around Bonfire Night, however, we do attend incidents throughout the year where people have been celebrating birthdays and religious festivals.

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.

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.
