Firework Safety Messages.

  • Fireworks are exciting, but they can be very dangerous
  • Never touch a firework. Dont pick up a firework after it has been used
  • Wear gloves when holding sparklers and keep it away from your body
  • Its not a good idea to hold more than one sparkler at once
  • Keep your sparkler safely away from other people and dont run around with it
  • Once your sparkler is finished, put it into a bucket of water, dont pick it back up. it stays hot for a long time and can burn you
  • Wrap up warm and leave any dressing up clothes at home
  • Stand away from the bonfire and stay together as a family
  • Dont be tempted to throw things into the bonfire or poke at it with sticks

If you catch your clothes on a flame, dont panic - STOP, DROP and ROLL -

  • STOP what you are doing.
  • DROP to the ground and cover your face with your hands.
  • ROLL over and over to put out flames.

Practice your STOP, DROP and ROLL before your fireworks celebrations.

Happy Bonfire/Firework Season everyone from the Lemon Tree Family Hub staff.
