Firework Safety

We Want all our customers to be as safe as possible when using our fireworks, So we have put together this firework safety information page for you with all the latest safety information on fireworks and our videos on how to setup your fireworks and firework displays in the safest way possible.

Despite annual safety warnings, Bonfire Night week still ends in disaster for far too many families. Fireworks and bonfire evenings can provide fun and entertainment for families at a time of year when the nights are rather dark and gloomy. They light up the sky. As long as everyone follows the right safety procedures and remembers that fireworks can be dangerous if misused, a good, safe time may be enjoyed by everyone.

FIREWORK SAFETY TOP 10 TIPS

  1. Plan your firework display to make it safe and enjoyable
  2. Keep fireworks in a closed box and use them one at a time
  3. Read and follow the instructions on each firework using a torch if necessary
  4. Light the firework at arm's length with a taper and stand well back
  5. Keep naked flames, including cigarettes, away from fireworks
  6. Never return to a firework once it has been lit
  7. Don't put fireworks in pockets and never throw them
  8. Direct any rocket fireworks well away from spectators
  9. Never use paraffin or petrol on a bonfire
  10. Make sure that the fire is out and surroundings are made safe before leaving.

These are often viewed as being harmless, but they do burn at fierce temperatures. Sparklers should not be given to anyone under the age of five. To a young child, the heat from a sparkler is equivalent to the heat from a welding torch.

SAFETY RULES FOR SPARKLERS

  • Never give them to young children under five
  • Always wear gloves with sparklers, preferably leather ones
  • Hold it at arm's length while an adult lights it for you
  • Use in a clear space away from others
  • Never hold a baby in your arms when you are holding a sparkler
  • When the sparkler has finished, put it into a bucket of cold water straight away and leave it there.
