Helping you in an emergency

The Norfolk Resilience Forum (NRF) has been set up to provide information to the public to warn and inform about emergencies. Our aim is to make you aware when there is a risk of an emergency and what our planned response will be and also to provide you with information and advice as necessary at the time of an emergency.

We hope you will find this website of assistance and interest.

Our weekly themed message is around Fireworks and keeping safe.

Plan your firework display to make it safe and enjoyable. Keep fireworks in a closed box and use them one at a time. Read and follow the instructions on each firework using a torch if necessary.

Light the firework at arm's length with a taper and stand well back.
Keep naked flames, including cigarettes, away from fireworks. Never return to a firework once it has been lit.

Don't put fireworks in pockets and never throw them. Direct any rocket fireworks well away from spectators. Never use paraffin or petrol on a bonfire. Make sure that the fire is out and surroundings are made safe before leaving.

Did you know that...
It is against the law to carry fireworks in public if you're under 18.
Fireworks must not be sold to anyone who is under 18.
It is an offence to let fireworks off during night hours (11pm to 7am), except on Bonfire Night (midnight), Diwali, New Year, and Chinese New Year (1am)
It is an offence under the Explosives Act 1875 to tamper with or modify fireworks
Sparklers can reach temperatures more than 15 times as hot as boiling water?

Don't forget about the animals...
Most animals get very scared by the lights and noise, so you should take precautions to protect your pets during the times of the year when fireworks are likely to be set off.

Make sure that cats and dogs have name tags on them in case the noise scares them and they run off.

Disposal of Fireworks
Never put fireworks, even those which are fully spent, on the bonfire.
Never dispose of them by burying.
Put fully spent fireworks (but not misfired or partly spent fireworks) in refuse receptacles.
Soak misfired or partly spent fireworks in a container of water in an area where they cannot be tampered with (preferably away from the display site) and contact the manufacturer or supplier for advice on disposal.
