From tomorrow Kiwis will be stocking up on their favourite fireworks for Guy Fawkes on Saturday, and while its a fun celebration for many police want to remind Kiwi buyers fireworks can be dangerous.
They asked people letting off crackers to do so in a safe and responsible way and to respect other people's property.
How to make sure you and your family stay safe with fireworks
• Watch the New Zealand Fire Service's fact video
• Read tips from the Environment Protection Society and Fire Service
• Check your local council bylaws before settting off fireworks in public places
