demonstration of the inappropriate use of fireworks

On Thursday 9th October 2008, Grampian Fire and Rescue Service, Grampian Police and Aberdeen City Council Trading Standards Service will launch their inter-agency Bonfire and Firework Safety Campaign.

A practical demonstration of the inappropriate use of fireworks will take place. A firework will be placed in the pocket of a clothed mannequin and the firework ignited. The powerful images will convey to the public the dangers associated with firework misuse.

There will be an opportunity for interviews with:

Group Manager Ally Birkett and Firefighters of Grampian Fire and Rescue Service
Inspector Alan Keith of Grampian Police
Graham Shand of Aberdeen City Council Trading Standards Service

Group Manager Ally Birkett, Head of Community Safety, Grampian Fire and Rescue Service said, ‘Grampian Fire and Rescue Service strongly recommend that you do not hold your own bonfire and fireworks party and that you attend an organised and steward event instead’.

He added, ‘Fireworks are explosives not toys. If they are used inappropriately they have the potential to cause severe injury or death.

The safety of the public is Grampian Fire and Rescue Service's main concern. We want people to enjoy themselves and not to take risks’.
