Do you want to Remember Remember the 5th of November?

While most of us are excited about the fireworks spectacular that comes with Bonfire Night and some may be preparing for it, the risk potential should not be overlooked.

Since many events will not be running due to Coronavirus restrictions, many may wish to organise their own event.

The West Yorkshire Fire and rescue service would like to remind everyone that carelessness with fireworks can result in severe injury or death.

  • Be careful when using fireworks. Only buy fireworks from reputable sellers and check the certificate is appropriate for use.
  • If hosting your own bonfire event, be considerate to your neighbours.
  • If you plan on having an open fire on your property, it is worth informing the West Yorkshire fire service, so they are aware.
  • Hoax calls to the emergency services can result in a £1000 fine.

Let’s not remember Bonfire Night for the wrong reasons.
