Fireworks Awareness Raising Campaign
Location
County-wide

Minister for Justice, Heather Humphreys TD, launched the Department of Justice Fireworks Awareness Raising Campaign for 2021, yesterday 22nd September, in collaboration with the ISPCA, Dublin Fire Brigade and An Garda Síochána at the Dublin Fire Brigade Training Centre.

 

This year’s annual campaign emphasises that fireworks are illegal because they are dangerous and urges people not to buy them, sell them or use them.

 

Minister Humphreys also noted the significant distress that fireworks can cause for people in our communities, particularly the elderly or those with sensory issues. They can also cause great harm and stress to family pets, and that is why this year’s campaign is being launched in collaboration with the ISPCA, Dublin Fire Brigade, and An Garda Síochána.
