Remember, remember to celebrate safely!
Bonfire night can be great fun for all the family but it is important that you celebrate safely.
We are appealing to everyone to take great care on bonfire night. We recognise that organised displays aren't happening this year due to the pandemic but we'd enourage you not to have fireworks at home. If you do choose to have a display at home please make sure you follow the firework code.
It’s a fact that many accidents are caused by improper use of fireworks and by carelessness. Figures show that more children than adults get hurt by fireworks.
Watching fireworks is popular and fun. But fireworks are explosives and potentially dangerous, so they need careful handling and storage.
We don’t recommend having a bonfire in your garden. They can easily get out of hand and spread quickly to hedges, overhanging trees and garages, even to the house.
If you do decide to have one please follow our advice here.
We work closely with Staffordshire Trading Standards and local councils as part of Operation Good Guy – to make sure retailers and the general public across Staffordshire have all the information and support they need to make their bonfire night safe.
