Bonfire Night

Bonfire Night Safety

Bonfire night can be a fun time of year but there are few things to remember to keep safe.

When letting off fireworks:-

 Do not allow smoking when fireworks are being handled, or at any time during the display;

 Before lighting any firework, read the instructions on it carefully;

 If any firework fails to go off, don’t go back to it. It could still be live and could go off. Half an hour is the minimum time you should wait before you consider approaching it again.

When it’s finished:-

 Use tongs or some other suitable tool to pick up spend fireworks, and wear strong gloves;

 Don’t allow any children to collect firework cases;

 If any fireworks look as if they haven’t gone off after half an hour, place them in a bucket of water.
