Kent Fire and Rescue Service Community Safety Service Delivery Manager, Charlie Smith said: "Bonfire night can be great fun for all the family but it is important that people celebrate safely. It is always best to attend an organised display but if you are planning your own, please make sure you follow the firework code.
"Many accidents are caused by improper use of fireworks and by carelessness. Figures show that more children than adults get hurt by fireworks."
He added: "Bonfires are a lot of fun too, but they can be dangerous. If you are having a bonfire this year, we urge you to take care and to follow our simple tips on our website, to make sure you and others are safe and acting lawfully."
