|Are you buying fireworks this year? Avoid unknown sellers on social media and only buy from licensed retailers.
Despite safety warnings, injuries occur every year. The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to attend a public display.
If you do buy fireworks:
Always check for the CE mark.
It is illegal for under 18’s to buy or carry fireworks.
Let your neighbours and those with pets or horses know in advance and stop at the appropriate time.
Read safety warnings on the box, and if you’re unsure, don’t use them.
Please help to keep us all safe this season by sharing this video.
