Fire Safety Company In Bid To Support Private Events This Weekend

Residents who are hosting fireworks parties this weekend are being urged to take extra safety precautions by a local fire safety company, who are offering to rent out fire extinguishers to those hosting a bonfire.

Mansfield Fire and Safety run a number of health and safety courses and are also going to be responsible for a number of organised fireworks events this coming weekend.

Henry Brown is the Company Director and speaking of the unique offer, said “If people want them we’re happy to rent them out, pick them up and drop them off etc. We commission the new fire extinguishers and service them so they’re ready, for £10 to £15”

“We’ll make sure that you get the right extinguisher as well rather than you going to your local DIY Shop and getting the ones which they sell from out of there (which could be the wrong type).”

Henry also urged people having a private fireworks event to check out the firework code, which he believes has not been publicised as much as it needs to be in the build up to Guy Fawkes night.

“I’ve not heard much of the fireworks code over the last few years, again it still applies if you want to have a safe night on bonfire night or at any display that you’re going too. A few bullet points from that would be to remember not to drink alcohol if you are setting off any fireworks yourself, keep fireworks in a closed box so that they don’t get any stray sparks – again follow the instructions and light them at arm’s length using a taper.”
