Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service are reminding people to attend organised displays and stay safe, particularly on Friday evening when firefighters are on strike between 6.30pm and 11pm.

Area Manager, Bryan Bennett said: “Bonfire night is traditionally a time when the fire service sees an increase in emergency calls, as bonfires get out of hand or a stray firework sparks a fire. By attending an organised display you can still enjoy the celebrations knowing you are safe and not at risk of fire or injury.”
