Being sensible and safe is the key to having firework fun….

What you need to know…….

RESPECT

To enjoy fireworks, make sure they are used in controlled way or at an organised event with adults present; otherwise you may annoy residents and the community.

ASB

Taking fireworks and bangers onto the streets and in parks is a form of anti-social behaviour; not only is it dangerous it is also illegal…. Don’t be pressured to join in with the reckless behaviour of others!!

RISK

Misuse of fireworks is dangerous to you and the public; not only do they cause serious, and sometimes fatal injury, they can also cause damage to property.

OFFENCES

If you are U18 and found in possession of fireworks or bangers, police have the power to confiscate them from you!!

r Causing injury to someone or damaging their property through recklessness with fireworks may result in you being dealt for an offence.

WHO DO YOU CALL??

Police 101 – for matters of ASB

Fire 999 – if you discover a fire

Ambulance 999 – if you or another person is seriously injured

Follow this advice and make sure EVERYONE has a fun firework experience!!
