BONFIRE NIGHT - STAY SAFE

Follow the Firework Code!

Fireworks are used on a number of different occasions throughout the year - Diwali, Samhain, New Year to name but a few. Whether it be a private or public display, Bonfire Night is one of the biggest nights for bonfire and firework displays across the County and we want to you be safe.

Bonfire Night can be a busy time of year for the emergency services and local authorities. Emergency services can be required to deal with anti-social behaviour 'ASB' and/ or due to the misuse of fireworks and bonfires. Fire crews, staff and volunteers continue to be out and about educating the public about the dangers of fires and fire setting.



Firework Top Ten Safety Code for Adults

Plan your firework display to make it safe and enjoyable.

  • Keep fireworks in a closed box and use them one at a time.
  • Read and follow the instructions on each firework using a torch if necessary.
  • Light the firework at arm's length with a taper and stand well back.
  • Keep naked flames, including cigarettes, away from fireworks.
  • Never return to a firework once it has been lit.
  • Don't put fireworks in pockets and never throw them.
  • Direct any rocket fireworks well away from spectators.
  • Never use paraffin or petrol on a bonfire.
  • Make sure that the fire is out and surroundings are made safe before leaving.


  • Buying fireworks

    You can only buy fireworks (including sparklers) from registered sellers for private use on these dates:

  • 15 October to 10 November.
  • 26 to 31 December.
  • 3 days before Diwali and Chinese New Year.

  • At other times you can only buy fireworks from licensed shops.


    Should you witness anti-social behaviour over the coming period and/or witness fireworks being used dangerously, please dial 101 for non-emergencies and 999 in an emergency.

    You can be fined up to 5,000 and imprisoned for up to 6 months for selling or using fireworks illegally. You could also get an on-the-spot fine of 90.
