Coronavirus: Staying safe this Bonfire Night

PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

While a second lockdown means all public fireworks displays are cancelled, please also think twice about organising a display at home.

Fireworks are dangerous and you could put yourself at risk of serious injury, which could then also put additional strain on the NHS and other emergency services at a time when they are extremely busy.

If you do organise one, please make sure it’s in line with lockdown restrictions and please follow fire safety guidance.

This includes storing fireworks safely to prevent fires and never drinking alcohol if setting off fireworks. Remember fireworks can scare animals, so keep pets indoors, make sure blinds and curtains are closed and keep them in an area where they feel safe.
