Safety tips for bonfires, sparklers and fireworks – by the London Fire Brigade
- If you’re having your own fireworks display, plan your firework display to make it safe and enjoyable, and ensure it finishes before 11pm
- Only buy fireworks which carry the CE mark, keep them in a closed box and use them one at a time
- Read and follow the instructions on each firework using a torch if necessary
- Light the firework at arm’s length with a taper and stand well back
- Keep naked flames, including cigarettes, away from fireworks
- Never return to a firework once it has been lit
- Don’t put fireworks in pockets and never throw them
- Direct any rocket fireworks well away from spectators
- Never use paraffin or petrol on a bonfire
- Build your bonfire clear of buildings, sheds, fences and hedges
- Make sure that the fire is out and surroundings are made safe before leaving
- Don’t leave bonfires unattended. An adult should supervise it until it has burnt out. It if has to be left, damp it down with water
- Always keep a bucket of water or a hosepipe nearby in case of emergency
