Bonfire night is an occasion enjoyed by thousands of people across Bristol each year. But it is important to remember that bonfires and fireworks can be dangerous. In 2006 over 1,000 people in the UK suffered injuries from fireworks – half of these were children under the age of 16.
The safest way to enjoy Bonfire night is at an organised display. However if you are planning on holding your own firework party, please make sure you follow the firework code:
- Keep pets indoors.
- Keep fireworks in a closed box.
- Only buy fireworks marked BS 7114.
- Follow the instructions on each firework.
- Never give sparklers to a child under five.
- Don’t drink alcohol if setting off fireworks.
- Always supervise children around fireworks.
- Light sparklers one at a time and wear gloves.
- Never put fireworks in your pocket or throw them.
- Light at arm’s length, using a taper – stand well back.
- Never go near a firework that has been lit. Even if it hasn’t gone off, it could still explode.
