Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police

Good afternoon. Its nearly that time of year again! Remember, Remember the fifth of November. Gunpowder treason and plot. We see no reason, why gunpowder treason should ever be forgot! Hosting a fireworks party can be really good fun. If you have a safe place to do so and want to celebrate with fireworks in the comfort of your own garden or on other private land (with the landowners permission), there's nothing to stop.Just remember, fireworks must be stored safely, in a closed box,somewhere cool and dry, out of reach of children and animals. Make sure you have a large enough space to let fireworks off safely.Each firework should have a minimum safety distance marked on it.Be considerate to your neighbours:Warn them them beforehand so they can take in their washing,close windows.keep their pets in indoors.Only buy fireworks from reputable dealers.The fireworks should have the product safety marking BS7114 or equivalent and carry a CE mark. Most shops have only been given permission to sell fireworks on or between these date. 15th October to 10th November. 26th to 31st December. 3 days before Diwali and Chinese New Year.To buy fireworks at other times, you must go to specially licensed shops.Take care and have fun.
