Be a Bright Spark – Attend an Organised Display

By Published October 19, 2018

Stay safe and only attend an organised fireworks display is the message from Cleveland Fire Brigade for 5 November celebrations.

Steve Johnson, Area Manager, Prevention and Protection, said: “We want everyone to enjoy themselves and it is much safer to leave the handling of fireworks to the experts. Going to an organised display, on a secure and cordoned off site keeps you well away from danger and possible injury. Many have music, food and other entertainment to add to the fun.

“Our Local Authorities and community groups invest resources to put on excellent, safe and enjoyable events. We are asking everyone to please follow our advice to enjoy the celebrations in safety.”

Organised displays are being held across Cleveland and Cleveland Fire Brigade have pulled together a list of events on their website: www.clevelandfire.gov.uk/firework-displays

  • I think good radio often uses the techniques of fiction: characters, scenes, a big urgent emotional question. And as in the best fiction, tone counts for a lot. – Ira Glass
