Derbyshire Police Issue Bonfire Night Guidance

The local police force says the best advice is to attend an organised event rather than risking your own safety by having a bonfire or fireworks display at home. 

However, if you are planning to use fireworks or organise your own bonfire then please follow these fireworks and bonfire safety guidelines:

  • Don't set off fireworks between 11pm-7am.
  • Keep fireworks in a closed metal box and take them out one at a time.
  • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on each firework.
  • Read them by torch light, not a naked flame and always buy fireworks from a reputable source.
  • Light fireworks at arm’s-length, using a safety firework lighter or fuse wick - then stand back.
  • NEVER go back to a firework once lit, it may still go off.
  • Collect used fireworks with care, douse with water and bury them or place in a metal container.
  • Keep children away from fireworks and bonfires.
  • Keep pets indoors.
  • Take care with sparklers - young children should not handle these.
  • NEVER throw fireworks.
  • NEVER keep fireworks in your pocket.
  • Keep a bucket of water handy.
