We won’t contract a display unless we’re convinced that the firing site is suitable, and insist that a site survey is made in order that to can conduct a thorough risk assessment.
As a rule of thumb we look for at least 50m from audience to fireworks with an area 100m x 100m beyond the fireworks to act as a fall out area (which should be downwind). Apart from these spatial requirements it’s the weather conditions on the day which have the greatest safety implications. All our firers are trained – to national level – to be able to interpret any hazards presented by circumstances on the day and the measures which need to be taken to minimise them.
