IT TAKES less than a minute to stay safe this Bonfire Night thanks to a video created by firefighters in Greater Manchester.
Members of the public are being called upon to share a bite-sized video with their friends across social media to help people stay safe this Bonfire Night by following the Firework Code.
The 50 second video shows people exactly how to handle fireworks safely this Bonfire Night taking people through every step of the Code.
Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service Station Manager, Paul Duggan, features in the film with local children whose Bonfire Night almost takes a turn for the worse.
Chair of Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Authority, Councillor David Acton, said: “We always recommend people go to an organised fireworks display, but we realise lots of people will be having their own displays in gardens across Greater Manchester.
“If you do one thing before setting off fireworks in your garden watch our video and understand the fireworks code – it take less than a minute.
“Taking simple steps like having a bucket of water at hand, wearing gloves and using a taper to light your fireworks will make sure your night goes off with the right kind of bang!
“If you do decide to get more bang for your buck at an organised display then please visit www.safe4autumn.com to find details of your nearest public display.”
