Gardaí warn parents in relation to the dangers of fireworks
The Halloween festive season is on the horizon and gardaí in Laois are taking this opportunity to remind people that the illegal use of fireworks can be distressful for those who are vulnerable, the elderly, pets and families.
“Parents, please ensure that you know where your kids are and conduct regular searches of their bags for fireworks.
“Talk to your kids about the great dangers associated with fireworks as many people sustain horrific burn related injuries at this time of year,” a spokesperson said.
If you have any information about illegal fireworks, please do not hesitate to call the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.
