Did You Know?
It is against the law to carry fireworks in public if you're under 18
Fireworks must not be sold to anyone who is under 18
It is an offence to let fireworks off during night hours (11pm to 7am), except on Bonfire Night (midnight), Diwali, New Year, and Chinese New Year (1am)
It is an offence under the Explosives Act 1875 to tamper with or modify fireworks
Did you know that sparklers can reach temperatures more than 15 times as hot as boiling water?
Having fireworks at home can be great fun, as long as they are used safely. Figures show more children rather than adults get hurt by fireworks. Over the past five years over 350 pre-school children, some only a year old, were treated in hospital for fireworks injuries.
Be safe not sorry
Fireworks are safe if you use them properly. If you’re putting on a home display, you should follow some simple steps to make sure that everyone has a good time without getting hurt.
Keep kids safe
We want children to enjoy fireworks but they need to know that they can be dangerous if they are not used properly. Each year, over half of all firework injuries are suffered by children.
Did you know that sparklers get five times hotter than cooking oil? Sparklers are not toys and should never be given to a child under five.
