Bonfire and firework display scheme launched

The annual bonfire and firework display notification scheme has been launched in Burnley.

The scheme is aimed at people and organisations holding bonfires or firework displays in the run-up to and on and around Bonfire Night.

The scheme has been successful in cutting the number of call-outs by the fire service to “nuisance” fires during its busiest time of the year.

Anyone organising a bonfire or firework display is urged to notify Burnley Council about the event. The council will work in partnership with Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service, Lancashire Police, Calico housing association and others to provide help and advice to people who notify us that they are taking on the responsibility of organising a bonfire or firework display.

A simple online form has been created on the council’s website for people and organisations to notify the authority about fires and firework displays that are open to the public. The deadline for notification is 27th October.

The aim of the scheme is to help ensure the period around the 5th of November is enjoyable, but safe for everyone. In previous years the scheme has concentrated on bonfires but this year it is looking at a wider safety message.

The council’s executive member for community services, Councillor Lian Pate, said: “The notification scheme has proved a success, cutting the number of nuisance calls which, in turn, has helped Bonfire Night to generally pass off more safely.” The online form is available at www.burnley.gov.uk/bonfire and sign up to the council’s Simply Click service (unless you have already done so). Follow the links to the scheme.

Burnley Council is holding a community bonfire and firework display at Towneley Park on Saturday 4th November – a chance to enjoy a large scale and spectacular organised event in safe surroundings. Tickets will be available from 2nd October from the Mechanics Theatre, St Peter’s and Padiham leisure centres, the Prairie Sports Village and Towneley Hall (cash only). There are “early bird” discounts available if tickets are bought before 20th October.
