  • Do stand away from both the fire and the fireworks
  • Do light only one sparkler at a time and do so at arms length
  • Do only use sparklers if supervised by an adult
  • Do keep you cat and dog inside during bonfire night
  • Do make sure an adult checks the bonfire for hidings pets of wild animals before lighting it
  • Do keep a bucket or water ready for emergencies

Don’t…

  • Don’t go near a firework after it has been lit
  • Don’t go near a firework after it has gone off
  • Don’t use sparklers unless you’re wearing gloves
  • Don’t give sparklers to children under the age of five
  • Don’t have a bonfire close to trees or buildings
