Diwali is a festival of lights and one of the major festivals celebrated of Hinduism.

Diwali usually lasts five days and is celebrated during mid-October and mid-November. Diwali symbolises the victory of good over evil, the triumph of light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance.

Fire and Emergency has created some resources to ensure everyone has a happy and safe Diwali.

The resources focus on taking a few simple precautions when using oil lamps and candles. You can access these on the Bookshelf on the Portal(external link).

A very happy Diwali to everyone celebrating!
