Bonfire Night Safety

How to stay safe on Bonfire Night!

With a smaller number of events taking place in West Yorkshire over the Bonfire weekend please attend organised events where possible, or follow the important Bonfire and Firework safety advice if hosting an event at home.

We want everyone to enjoy the bonfire season responsibly. Garden bonfires can so easily get out of control. Not only do these pose a serious risk to yourself, your family and the public, but they also take our crews away from other potentially life-threatening incidents.

However you spend your Bonfire Night, please follow our safety advice: 

  • Just one mistake this Bonfire Night could leave you scarred for life
  • Keep everyone well away from fires and fireworks – especially children – and keep pets indoors
  • Avoid drinking alcohol whilst in charge of a bonfire or fireworks
  • In case of an emergency, keep buckets of water, the garden hose or a fire extinguisher ready
  • Only children over the age of five are allowed to use sparklers and should be supervised by an adult at all times
  • Prank 999 calls are a criminal offence
