If you plan on celebrating this long weekend with fireworks, you should make sure to do it safely.

That’s the message from Brudenell, Lyndoch and Raglan Fire Chief Jordan Genrick, who says you should make sure you aren’t at risk when setting them off.

Genrick says it is very dry right now so fireworks should be lit over water as well.

Genrick says the most important thing when using fireworks is just common sense.
