Pyro Law

29 September 2007 - 06:02 PM

Can anyone please tell me what the laws are for using pyros in schools in UK?

We have a premises license
Can do detailed risk assessment (got template from Le Maitre)
Competent person firing the pyros
Plenty of practice with and without cast nearby.

Pyros have been used in this building before but not by me.
Is there anything else we need to do. I have never been fully in charge but have worked with pyros before, just not the legal stuff

Any help appreciated. We just want some small gerbs and silver jets from le maitre

I want to make a nozzeless rocket

Firework Jokes!

Chinese man to American man:
"You are not us clever as us. We discovered gunpowder and used it for fireworks. You used it in guns."

You might be a redneck if...
your lifelong goal is to own a fireworks stand.

Q: What do you get when you cross a dinosaur with fireworks?

A local policeman had just finished his shift one cold November evening and was at home with his wife.

"You just won't believe what happened this evening , in all my years on the force I've never seen anything like it."

"Oh yes dear, what happened ?"

"I came across two guys down by the canal, one of them was drinking battery acid and the other was eating fireworks."

"Drinking battery acid and eating fireworks!! What did you do with them ?"

"Oh that was easy, I charged one and let the other off."
