Child Safety Media is urging communities to keep safe on Bonfire Night by taking a few simple steps.

It’s always best to attend an organised public display but if you’re making other arrangements then it’s vital to remember the following tips to keep yourself safe:

  1. Never return to a lit firework even if you think it has gone out
  2. Never throw or play with fireworks
  3. Never put fireworks in your pockets
  4. Never drink alcohol whilst using fireworks – they don’t mix
  5. Always keep your pets indoors
  6. Always stand well back when fireworks are lit
  7. Always keep fireworks in a closed metal box
  8. Always let adults light the fireworks
  9. Always keep a bucket of water nearby
  10. Always read the instructions with a torch if dark
