Photo: SIMON WATTS Burning advice with fireworks Firefighters are hoping their phones will be quiet this week. The Fire Service is urging people to take care and follow instruc- tions when lighting fire- works. While there has been a reduction in fire- related incidents over Guy Fawkes in recent years, during this time we will see a consider- able number of unnecess- ary fires and injuries,'' fire risk management officer Phil Faidley says. Please take care when letting off fire- works this year. Better still, attend one of the organised fire- works displays in your community,'' he says. Senior fire risk man- agement officer George Stephens says new regulations introduced in 2007 have had an impact. The sale of fire- works was reduced from 10 days to four and the age at which they can be purchased lifted from 14 to 18. What we saw last year was the lowest number of calls received since official records began in 1996 and I know fire crews are look- ing forward to more of the same this year, Mr Stephens says.
