Police and fire officials are working together in the area to prevent anti-social behaviour and fire related incidents in the lead up to Halloween and Bonfire Night.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service and Dyfed Powys Police have launched their BANG (Be A Nice Guy) campaign as part of an all-Wales operation to encourage people to stay safe and ensure celebrations do not get out of hand.

Arson Reduction Manager, Steve Richards advises: “With fireworks now widely on sale across the country, it’s really important that people plan their Bonfire Night celebrations in advance to ensure they are memorable for all the right reasons.

"We would encourage everyone to enjoy fireworks at a properly organised public display, as that’s the safest option and discourage the public from opting for celebrations at home. 

“In previous years, we have sadly heard of many people suffering painful injuries because something has gone wrong at a private fireworks party. 

"We want to remind people that fireworks are explosives and the injuries they can cause, such as to the eye, can be devastating. If you are planning a private party, good preparation is a crucial element of a successful and safe display”.
