Provisions relating to minimum firefighting equipment will be refined and the current definition of ‘adequate’ fire-fighting equipment (being at least 2 suitable fire extinguishers, 2 sand buckets and 1 hose connected to a water supply) will be removed.

The requirement to provide adequate fire-fighting equipment on site throughout the day will remain; however, fireworks display permits will specify the minimum fire-fighting equipment that is considered to be ‘adequate’ for each display.
