Don’t ‘fire’ up at home warning­

NSW firefighters are warning people to leave the fireworks to the experts.

Royal Fire Service superintendent Steve Walker said people considering letting off their own fireworks tonight should think again.

He said units would be on standby tonight for those taking celebrations into their own hands.

“It’s been a quiet Christmas period and the campers have been mostly well-behaved, people on the roads have been well-behaved, but we have concerns for fireworks (tonight),” he said.

“It’s been a problem with campers along the river on both sides.

“With the vegetation being as dry as it is, any form of ignition from fireworks is dangeous.”

Fireworks are prohibited in Victoria and NSW unless bought and supervised by a licensed, trained professional.

Mr Walker said there had been no serious accidents in Sunraysia from “backyard fireworks” in recent years, and hoped it would remain that way.

“You hear every year that people (in other places) lose thumbs and fingers,” he said.

“It’s just not worth the tragedy.”

He reminded campers of other fire safety rules, including the use of campfires and gas cookers.

Neither should be used on days of total fire bans, which differed from Victoria to NSW.
