Stay Safe on Bonfire Night

County Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service want everyone to really enjoy themselves during what should be a great night.

Don’t fool with fireworks, you may get hurt!

It’s more fun and safer to go to an organised display.

There is information on public firework displays, illegal

fireworks and the firework code on the Service website www.ddfire.gov.uk or www.durham.gov.uk

Top tips for staying safe:

¨ Only buy fireworks marked BS7114 from reputable suppliers

¨ Keep fireworks in a closed box

¨ Follow the instructions on each firework carefully

¨ An adult should light them at arm’s length using a suitable taper

¨ Everyone stand well back – the minimum distance will be on the firework

¨ Never go back to a lit firework

¨ Never put fireworks in your pocket

¨ Never throw fireworks

¨ Light sparklers one at a time and wear gloves

¨ Never give sparklers to children under 5 years

¨ Have a bucket of water handy to put the sparklers in

It’s NO fun when a firework goes off in your face, it’s no fun sitting in hospital, it’s no fun being scarred for life and it’s no fun when your family and friends are injured.  Please stay safe!
