Fire crews issue firework safety reminder

Wed, 19 Oct 2016

The Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service has issued a safety reminder ahead of this year's bonfire night.

Fireworks can be sold between October 25th and November 5th, while displays can be held from next Friday.

Fire safety officers are urging anyone who buys fireworks to make sure they're stored safely, not drink while setting off fireworks and supervise children.

Fireworks should also meet the British Standard for Fireworks, and bear the BS7114 code on the packaging.

Anyone who buys fireworks that don't meet safety standards should contact Trading Standards on 686520.
