Safety Information
Organised fireworks displays are the safest way to enjoy fireworks. Please leave your pets and fireworks at home. Animal Friends have created further information and tips for pet owners on how to deal with the effects fireworks have on their pets. Any fireworks (including sparklers) brought on site will be confiscated and destroyed.

No dogs, except guide dogs.

West Midlands fire Service recognises that people may prefer to celebrate the occasion at home with family and friends and where this is the case, people are reminded to ensure that:

  • Fireworks are stored safely (usually in a tin with a lid)
  • They comply with the guidance set out in the firework code
  • Children are always supervised around fireworks
  • They never return to a firework which has failed to go off – it may go off unexpectedly
  • They never pour petrol or other flammable materials over a bonfire
  • They make sure spectators maintain a safe distance
  • They ensure the bonfire is safely constructed away from buildings, fences and other materials which could catch alight if the fire spreads; and
  • They remember it can take several hours for a bonfire to fully extinguish.
