Firefighters in Exeter will be helping people stay safe this Bonfire Night by organising their own public fireworks party. Most accidents happen at private parties, so organised displays are much safer than having a party of your own. To help people enjoy the occasion safely, firefighters and police officers in Exeter are inviting residents to join them for a party at Middlemoor Fire Station, on Saturday 2 November. Crew Manager Greg Webb, of White Watch at Middlemoor Fire Station, said: We don't want to stop people enjoying fireworks, so we thought we'd help by providing an opportunity for people to do that safely. Organised displays are much safer than private parties so why not come to ours or find an organised display near to where you live. Remember to follow the firework safety code wherever you are. The Middlemoor Fire Station charity fireworks display will be held on Saturday 2 November, 6pm until late. The event will raise funds for the Police Benevolent Fund and the Fire Fighters Charity. There will be a free hog roast and a disco with bar. Entrance will be by ticket only, priced at £12 for adults and Â£6 for children under 12. Tickets are available from Middlemoor Fire Station, Sidmouth Road, Exeter, EX2 7AP or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Free parking for the event will be available at the Park and Ride at Sowton, opposite Digby and Sowton train station, as there will be no parking available on site. The firework code can be found at www.dti.gov.uk/fireworks.
