Only buy fireworks suitable for gardens & neighbourhoods, residents urged

With fireworks going on sale to the public this week, residents are being asked to check that they only buy products that are suitable for their garden and neighbourhood.

“We know that many people will be considering having fireworks at home this year because large displays are likely to be cancelled,” said Paul Howes, Group Manager for Prevention and Protection at Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue.

“It’s so important that you check the packaging to see how much space needs to be given for each type of firework, and only buy the ones that are suitable for your garden.

“We would also recommend that you consider your neighbours and whether they have pets, or are elderly. You can buy a range of noiseless or low-noise fireworks that will still give a great display but without disturbing others.”

Category 2 and 3 fireworks are for sale to the public for outdoor use.

Paul added: “Having fireworks at home can be fun but please use them safely. Always buy from reputable retailers and follow the instructions for each type of firework.

“Have a bucket of water on hand, just in case, and take particular care that children stay well away from fireworks – lit or unlit.”
