Let us know about your public firework display

Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service (HWFRS) is encouraging anyone who is holding an organised public bonfire or firework display in Herefordshire or Worcestershire for Bonfire Night to let them know details about the event.

Station Commander Stuart Crebbin from HWFRS's Community Risk department explained: "Organised public displays are by far the safest way to enjoy Bonfire Night and so we are encouraging people to head along to one of these events with their families and friends rather than lighting fireworks themselves at home."

He confirmed that HWFRS is compiling a list of organised bonfire and firework displays taking place across the two counties and that people can check out the list on the Service's website, on the Fireworks displays page, and find their nearest event. Further bonfire and firework safety advice will also be available on the website.

This list will be updated on a regular basis until Bonfire Night on Saturday 5 November and anyone holding an organised bonfire or firework display in Herefordshire or Worcestershire can add their event to the list by calling HWFRS on 0800 032 1155 or emailing hfsc@hwfire.org.uk
