Were pleased to see a reduction in overall incidents including deliberate bonfires and want to thank the public for helping keep bonfire night safe this year. As we move towards the weekend we want to remind people to be safe and the best way to do that is to attend an organised display. If people must buy fireworks for use at home we would urge them to only buy ones which comply with British Standard BS7114 and to please follow the Firework Code. This is not only for their safety but for that of their family and friends as well. The Brigade is also issuing a reminder that only adults should set off fireworks and parents should make their children aware of the dangers of playing with them. The Firework Code Keep fireworks in a closed box Follow the instructions on each firework Light all fireworks at arms length Stand well back Never go back to a lit firework Never put fireworks in your pocket Never throw fireworks Do not drink alcohol if setting off fireworks. If anyone has any information about arson or anti-social behaviour in their area, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or the Police on 101.

Doolin names Ireland Under-18 squad for Czech Republic friendlies - Yahoo Sports

View photo The Boys in Green youth manager says that the friendly games give him an opportunity to assess players coming through the ranks Paul Doolin has announced a 19-man Under-18 squad ahead of two friendly games against the Czech Republic. The panel contains a mixture of domestically based players and players who ply their trade abroad. Shamrock Rovers trio Shane Hanney, James Doona and Trevor Clark are joined by St Patrick's Athletic pair Jamie Aherne and Conor Kane in the squad. Cork City's Conor McCarthy and Shelbourne goalkeeper Eric Donnelly are also included. The Boys in Green boss says that the fixtures provide an opportunity for players to impress him and stake a claim for a place in his U-19 panel. "These fixtures gives us a chance to see what's coming through," Doolin said. "There's a mixture of home-based players with players from abroad. "When we played with a similar group last year we did very well. There are some good players in this group. I've only seen these players so most of them are new to me in terms of working directly with them. "It's a good opportunity for the players to step up the levels. We'll do the same as we've done with the players and hopefully they will benefit from the experience." The Republic of Ireland take on the Czech Republic on Saturday November 28 at 15:00 before contesting a second game at 12:00 on Monday. Both games will be played at Whitehall.

Dave Turton, Head of Community Safety at Cleveland Fire Brigade, said: This religious festival is a busy time, as families and friends get together and symbolic candles are lit. All of these ingredients increase the risk of fire in homes as it is easy to get distracted with all of the festivities going on. When celebrating, please follow our simple safety advice. Treat the Diva (candle) as you would any other flame: oUse only enough ghee (clarified butter) to last your Puja (worship). oPlace it in a suitable fire resistant candleholder and do not leave it unattended oKeep the flame a safe distance from curtains, furniture or decorations at all times. Long hair and clothing are also very flammable. Treat fireworks with great caution: oOnly buy fireworks marked with British Safety Standard BS7114 oAlways follow the firework code Keep fireworks and candles out of the reach of children and ensure they are supervised at all times. If you decide to cook deep-fried food: oStand by your pan never leave cooking unattended. oDry your food before placing it in the hot oil. oIf the oil starts to smoke, turn off the heat and leave the pan to cool. oNever fill the pan more than one-third full of oil.
