Manchester City Council have written up some safety guidelines for keeping a bonfire under control, and have advice on how to report dangerous, or unauthorised bonfires.
They have said that the public should be encouraged to attend organised events rather than put themselves at risk by having their own private events. GMFRS will not make an attendance to unlit bonfires. The service has no authority to deal with bonfires built on private property.
Details of organised events are available on www.safe4autumn.com. If anyone knows of any established community events, please forward full details to Zoe Henderson, so that the event can be added to the website.
Reports of any unauthorised bonfires can be made by GMP, GMFRS or Council officers. Any reports will then go to the MCC Grounds Maintenance who will then go out and clear. You can call them to report unathorised bonfires on 0161 234 5004 or on 0161 223 7222 if it is an emergency.
They have also provided a list of rules to help you enjoy a bonfire in a safe way:
