Let neighbours know in advance when you are planning to let off fireworks, so they can take steps to protect vulnerable people and animals.
If you live close to horses, make sure you site your fireworks well away from them and aim them in the opposite direction. Do not let off fireworks if they will disturb nearby farm animals, wildlife habitats, or roosting bats and birds.
Keep animals safe. Dogs and cats should be kept inside and have a hiding place. Give small animals who live outside lots of extra bedding and nesting material to burrow in.
