Fireworks Safety Message

18th October 2011

Its fireworks season and a number of Scout Groups and Districts will be holding firework displays.

If you are intending to run a display it is the responsibility of Group & District Executive Committees, as trustees to ensure that the event is run in accordance with the safety policy of The Scout Association and guidance of the Health and Safety Executive and RoSPA.

Further information can be found in the October/November magazine.

If your display intends to use Category 4 fireworks ensure that those running the display are fully competent to do so. This should be demonstrated through appropriate training and experience or use of professional firers. Further information from the British Pyrotechnists Association.
