TOP TEN FIREWORK SAFETY TIPS

  • Plan your firework display with safety in mind to make it more enjoyable.
  • Always use one firework at a time and keep all fireworks in a sealed damp-proof box.
  • Read and follow all instructions via torchlight if required on each firework before using them.
  • Light a single firework at a time with a taper (Portfire) at arm's length then stand well back.
  • Keep all naked flames, cigarettes, away from fireworks.
  • Once lit you should never return to any firework.
  • Never throw fireworks or fire them at animals and people and don't put fireworks in your pockets.
  • Position any rockets at a slight angle in the opposite direction of any spectators.
  • Never use petrol or paraffin on a bonfire.
  • Always check that the Bonfire or smaller fires are correctly extinguished, and all surroundings have been made safe before leaving.


SAFETY RULES FOR SPARKLERS

  • Never give them to young children under five years old.
  • Always wear gloves with sparklers, preferably leather ones.
  • Hold it at arm's length while an adult lights it for you. Use in a clear space away from others.
  • Never hold a baby in your arms when you are holding a sparkler.
  • When the sparkler has finished, put it into a bucket of cold water straight away and leave it there.
  • Sparklers should not be given to anyone under the age of five.
  • To a young child, the heat from a sparkler is equivalent to the heat from a welding torch.
  • Sparklers are often viewed as being harmless but they do burn at fierce temperatures.
