Heart Breakfast with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden 6:30am - 10am
Police and fire want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable Bonfire night, to act responsibly and think about your actions and think about others.
In 2009, Mary Fox was killed in her Bodmin Home after youths pushed a firework through her letterbox - she died beacause the fire took hold with all the paperwork she'd accumulated over the years.
Now, police and fire are working together to make sure people recognise the dangers and don't act anti-socially.
Throwing fireworks, selling them to Under 18's can lead to the following:
Incidents of anti-social behaviour in the run-up to Bonfire night have gone down. But police say one incident is one to many and can potential seriously injure or kill someone.
Its hoped this 'Don't be a fool with fireworks' campaign can be rolled out nationwide.
Bodmin Crew manager Mark Pratton and Neighbourhood Beat Sargeant Jared Connop tell Heart the reasons they wanted to start the campaign:
The main advice is to celebrate Bonfire night by going to an organised display and if you see any youngsters messing around with fireworks then phone 101 immediately and report the misuse of fireworks.
It is illegal:
Police have the power to stop and search anyone suspected of carrying fireworks. All fireworks sold to the public must comply to British Safety Standard BS 7114
