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.
The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to attend an organised display:
- Report arson confidentially call Crimestoppers 0800 555 111 or Cleveland Police on 101
