Be Safe on Bonfire Night
Never play with fireworks - They are explosives and can hurt you.
Always keep fireworks in a closed box and always follow the instructions on the box.
Only adults should light or hold fireworks.
When you are watching fireworks stand well back.
Never go near a firework that has been lit. Even if it hasn’t gone off, it could still explode.
Fireworks will frighten your pets, so keep your pets safely indoors.
If you are given a sparkler:
Always wear gloves. Hold it at arm’s length. When your sparkler goes out, DON’T TOUCH IT. It could still burn you, so put it in a bucket of water.
Never let off fireworks in public places such as streets or parks.
