Bonfire night revellers urged to ‘stay safe’

Crowborough residents are being praised for staying safe during the bonfire celebrations over the weekend.

November 5th revellers across East Sussex are urged to follow suit and enjoy all the fun of organised firework displays, whilst sipping hot soup and eating hot dogs.

Sadly, Guy Fawkes night can spark call-outs for the Service if bonfires get out of control or the Firework Code is not followed correctly.

Tonight, people are urged to take care and remember the potential dangers around bonfires and fireworks. East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service would like everyone to enjoy the festivities whilst keeping safe.

Watch Commander, Andy Tolkien, said: "The weekend's Crowborough Bonfire Night Celebrations were a huge success and there were no other firework related incidents in the Crowborough area.

"It was a great evening and very well attended. We would like to thank the Crowborough Community for listening to safety advice given out about potential dangers around bonfires and fireworks, whilst still enjoying the festivities and keeping safe. 

"East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service recommends going to an organised firework display instead of holding one at home. However, if you do intend to use fireworks at home, follow the Firework Code."
