Firework displays are loads of fun, but fireworks can be really dangerous if you don’t use them properly. As we approach November 5th, here’s our guide on how to stay safe around fireworks.
Every year on Bonfire Night there are hundreds of accidents across the UK, and lots of them happen to children.
Fireworks can be very dangerous and that’s why safety is the most important thing when it comes to having a display.
We ask parents to only allow children to attend organised events.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) say adults should deal with fireworks and that children should watch from a safe distance…
- Never put them in your pocket
- Never pick one up off the floor
- Make sure an adult is always present
- Light them one at a time
- Wear gloves
- Hold them at arm’s length
- When it goes out, put the hot end in a bucket of water. Otherwise it could still burn you
