WITH fiestas coming up next month, the Costa Blanca municipality’s townhall is organising a course in the safe use of fireworks. Attending the short course from the Pren-li Foc a la Metxa (Light the Fuse) association enables participants to obtain CRE (Consumer Recognised as Expert) credentials. This, in turn, allows holders to take part in some of the fireworks displays which are inseparable from Costa Blanca fiestas. Participants can sign up on the [email protected] website until March 15 for the course held in Teulada-Moraira’s council chamber between 9am and 2pm. Instruction focuses on letting off bangers during the Desperta early morning wake-up call and Correfoc firework runs through the streets. The course which costs €10 to attend is open to eight-year-olds and upwards, although minors need a parent’s authorisation.
“Fireworks are something that we regard as normal, as they are part of all Valencia region fiestas, but they can be dangerous and it is important to know how to use them correctly,” said Fiestas councillor Aitor Llobell.
“It is essential for everybody who takes part in the fiestas and who likes fireworks to learn how to handle them, for their own safety and that of others.”
