The Community Fire Safety Team at Blackburn Fire Station have written us regarding their the Brightsparx Campaign that focuses on the 5th November events.
You may not be aware but we have a very large problem with Anti-Social Behaviour in Blackburn with Darwen over the Bonfire Night Period.
Over the past 5 years there has been a significant increase of young people purchasing industrial fireworks and throwing them at each other, putting them through letterboxes and aiming them at people / property within the community.
The fire service, police and council have a range of planned actions to reduce .
risks on the night but are looking for support from the community in the run up to bonfire night to discourage anti-social behaviour’.
