SFRS issue warning over fireworks safety

29 October 2019

Article: 53/4308

Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) figures show that children are more likely to be injured by fireworks than adults. Over the past five years, more than 350 pre-school children, some as young as one year-old, were treated in hospital for firework injuries.

Fireworks and bonfire safety advice is available on the SFRS website and a list of organised fireworks displays for 2019 can be downloaded. 

SFRS also provide downloadable safety leaflets on Halloween and bonfire and fireworks.
