Bonfires and Fireworks

The attached documents give advice to help you hold bonfire and firework displays safely.

There are two pro forma risk assessments - version one and version two - for your use: select which format best suits your needs and complete the assessment. Ensure that the risk assessment isn't simply a paper exercise - put it into practice so that everyone can enjoy a safe display.

Information on giving organised displays is available from the Health and Safety Executive.

You can also see the Department for Communities and Local Government advice on celebrating Bonfire Night.
