Bonfire Night Safety
Over the last week we have been posting a range of Bonfire Night safety tips through Facebook and Twitter. This post culminates them all and gives some great advice on how to stay safe this bonfire night! Most firework and bonfire incidents occur around this time of year so it’s important to take extra precautions and be aware of any danger.
Sparklers can reach a temperature of over 15 times the boiling point of water and therefore should be handled with care. Be sure to hold them safely away from your body and other people. Once they have burnt out stick them in a bucket of water or sand until fully cooled. Fireworks are beautiful and fill the sky with light, but they need to be handled properly. Designate one person to be in charge of fireworks. Never go back to a lit firework, stand well back and light fireworks at arms length.
It always best to go to an organised bonfire than create your own. Most people don’t have the space required as it needs to be at least 18 meters away from your house, trees, fence or shed. If you are wondering where to go there are many events in your local area! You can find events like this by clicking here. For more bonfire night safety tips check out Lancashire Fire and Rescue. Most of all have fun and spent time with friends and family!
