Fireworks Advice from Kent Public Protection

Autumn has arrived and with it the glorious changing colours of the leaves and falling temperatures and it also means that firework season is almost here. We want you to enjoy fireworks season so if you are thinking about putting on your own fireworks display we recommend you:

  • Only buy from reputable, recognised retailers;
  • Only buy fireworks marked with CE and BSEN1594.

For tips on using firework safely visit Kent Fire Rescue.

Do not use fireworks if they are:

  • Unbranded and in plain packaging;
  • Look cheap or poorly made;
  • The product information is limited or only a CE marked is displayed;
  • being sold by private sellers trading from home or on social media.
