Firework Safety

If you are helping to organise or run a public event, or holding your own private fireworks display, please be aware of the following safety tips to help you stay safe at all times:

  • Obey local laws and customs. If fireworks are not legal where you live, please do not use them.
    • In Guernsey please do not release any fireworks on 13th November 2014 due to the GSPCA & KGV pet-friendly celebrations that night.
  • Use fireworks outdoors only.
  • Use fireworks responsibly - never throw them or aim them at people or property.
  • Always have water close to hand, either a hose or bucket.
  • Only use fireworks as intended. Do not try to alter them or combine them together.
  • Never relight a dud firework that has failed to go off. Wait 20 minutes before returning to the firework and then soak it in a bucket of water.
  • Use common sense. Spectators should keep a safe distance from the person lighting the fireworks, and that person should wear safety glasses.
  • Alcohol and fireworks do not mix. Have a "designated lighter" person setting off your fireworks who remains teetotal for the evening.
  • Only persons over the age of 12 should be allowed to handle sparklers of any type. Younger children may wave safer glowsticks instead.
  • Do not ever use homemade fireworks or other illegal explosives - they can kill you! Report illegal explosives to the local police or fire station.

For further safety information please see the British Pyrotechnists Association website.

Animal Safety

Please be aware that fireworks terrify pets and other animals, so please follow the GSPCA animal friendly firework code to protect your pets and the local wildlife. Please visit the following page at the GSPCA website for full details:
