Many people love the excitement of a good firework display, but it shouldn't be forgotten that fireworks are explosives and have the potential to cause major injuries.
If you are organising a local firework display you will want to ensure that is planned and organised with the safety of the crowd as a priority.
Voluntary firework display registration scheme
To help everyone enjoy a happy, accident free event, we have introduced a free voluntary firework display registration scheme which will help organisers of such events to plan and operate a safe firework or bonfire display.
Apply to register an event
You can download an application form (Word doc) to apply for registration.
Once a completed application form is received, an appointment will be made to carry out an advisory site visit and some recommendations for improvement may be provided.
If everything is satisfactory and the necessary works have been completed, applications will be issued with a certificate of registration.
