During a 6 week period building up to bonfire night - October/November
2000 there were two fatalities and over 1830 hospital treated firework injuries. Around 900 injuries required further and extensive medical treatment, in some cases for months following the accident, regrettably most of the injured were children and youths.

Thousands more were treated by parents, GP's, Chemists, and First-Aiders for injuries locally, but are not included in official lists.

Fireworks are too easily available to youths from the shops. As a result people have terrorised particularly the elderly. Animals are also injured
and killed by fireworks.

Injuries at back garden parties occurred because people are always looking for higher grade explosive fireworks. Now it is almost possible to purchase category 3 fireworks from the shops...... it's safer and more exciting
to go to an organsied display.

If you are having your own firework party, shown across are some
simply rules your should always follow :-

Safety is of the utmost concern to G2 Fireworks.....
we pay meticulous detail to safety and first aid at all our displays
