Whilst many people will be attending organised events, make sure you follow safety guidelines if you are letting off fireworks at home.
- Don’t be the one to light fire works if you have been drinking, you need your wits about you
- Make sure you follow the instructions on each firework
- Direct rockets away from people
- Always keep a bucket of water nearby in case of any emergency
- Do not give sparklers to children under 5 and make sure everyone keeps them at arm’s length
- Do not leave bonfires unattended. Make sure you clear up and the fire is out before you leave it.
It is important to always stay safe to ensure a memorable night with friends, family, and fireworks. For more information check the London Fire Brigade website.
