Fireworks are increasingly used to mark big celebrations such as Bonfire Night, Diwali, New Years’ Eve and other milestones.

Unofficial displays not only cause a nuisance to local people, animals and the environment, they also impact greatly on the wider community. They tie up fire engines that should be undertaking vital life-saving prevention work or attending real emergencies.

Please don’t get involved in unofficial displays or let your children attend one.
