Exempt list for fireworks displays 29 May 2008

Fireworks over the Villa MarinaPLANS are being progressed to make life easier for organisations that hold fireworks displays in the Island.

The Department of Home Affairs is inviting applications from charities, clubs and committees wishing to be included on a prescribed list exempting them from providing formal notification of their intention to stage a display. The aim is to save responsible organisations the costs associated with advertising their events.

Subject to Tynwald approval, the order will come into force on July 18. Organisations seeking to be included on the exempt list should submit their applications to the department by Friday, June 13. However, applications received after that date will be considered for inclusion in a future order later in the year.

Fireworks displays in the Island are subject to strict controls and certain criteria must still be met by organisations wishing to be registered on the list of exemptions.

Further information and application packs are available from Claire Newall, Legislation Executive, Department of Home Affairs, 88 Woodbourne Road, Douglas, IM2 3AP. Contact 694323 or email claire.newall@dha.gov.im Alternatively email Julie.cross@dha.gov.im or download an application from the Department of Home Affairs website www.gov.im/dha/ceo/fireworks

Details of all fireworks displays still have to be brought to the attention of the Department of Home Affairs which in turn informs the IoM Constabulary, Fire and Rescue Service, Emergency Services Joint Control Room and the Coastguards.

The Events Safety Advisory Group can also be contacted for guidance ahead of fireworks displays where public access is intended. The group can be contacted through the Health and Safety at Work Inspectorate, Murray House, Mount Havelock, Douglas, IM1 2SF. Telephone 685952 or email eventsafety.dlge@gov.im
