DWFRS remind football fans about the dangers of fireworks


Date: 10th July, 2021

With England in the final of the Euro 2020 championship this Sunday, firefighters are taking the opportunity to remind fans about firework safety. 

Fireworks are a great way of celebrating or commiserating, and they are completely safe if they are used properly. If you’re putting on a home display, Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service have some simple steps to make sure that everyone has a good time without getting hurt. 

Group Manager Jason Moncrieff said: “Firefighters across Dorset & Wiltshire will be wishing England good luck on Sunday evening ahead of the final. We want to encourage football fans across the counties to enjoy the game and celebrate, or commiserate, safely. We want to make sure that the public are kept safe and feel safe and we’d anyone who is using fireworks to consider the potential fire risks.” 

He added: “There are a few simple things that can be done to reduce these risks, always follow the instructions on each firework and light them at arm’s length, using a taper and ensure that bonfires and fireworks are away from sheds, fences and other flammable materials.” 

There are a few simple rules residents can follow to ensure fireworks are used safely:
