The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service recommend that people attend organised fireworks displays, and these four professionally-organised events offer fun, free family nights out.”

Illegal bonfires and do-it-yourself fireworks displays can also go wrong in an instant and SFRS is clear everyone has a role to play in protecting their community. Celebrate Bonfire Night and have a great time without inviting trauma and tragedy. Attending official and organised events are far more spectacular than any do-it-yourself fireworks display or an illegal bonfire.

SFRS is also encouraging the public to report any unsafe or dangerous bonfires, or the build-up of bonfire materials, to Police Scotland using the 101 non-emergency number or by calling Crimestoppers Scotland on  0800 555 111.

Visitors to Strathclyde Country Park for the fireworks event are advised to allow plenty of time for their journey, to follow road signs and directions from the police marshals, and to park responsibly. Parking restrictions will be in force on residential streets around the park.

Sparklers are not allowed within the park and visitors should dress appropriately for the weather and bring a torch.

If anyone is planning to buy fireworks this year, Trading Standards service advise residents to only buy from a reputable retailer. Only fireworks that comply with European safety standards, carry the CE mark and are correctly labelled with details of the manufacturer and importer can legally be supplied to consumers.
