Watching fireworks can be great fun but they can cause problems if they are not used safely or events well organised.

Every year children and adults are hurt by fireworks or displays cause nuisance which could have been avoided if some basic rules were followed.

  • Keep people back from the area where fireworks are being kept and lit.
  • Have some fire fighting equipment available
  • Provide proper supports or launchers for fireworks
  • Always supervise children
