Despite annual safety warnings, Bonfire Night week still ends in disaster for far too many families. Fireworks and bonfire evenings can provide fun and entertainment for families at a time of year when the evenings are rather dark and gloomy. They light up the sky.
As long as everyone follows the right safety procedures and remembers that fireworks can be dangerous if misused, a good, safe time may be enjoyed by everyone.

SAFETY RULES FOR SPARKLERS
Never give them to young children under five years old. Always wear gloves with sparklers, preferably leather ones. Hold it at arm’s length while an adult lights it for you. Use in a clear space away from others. Never hold a baby in your arms when you are holding a sparkler. When the sparkler has finished, put it into a bucket of cold water straight away and leave it there.
- Sparklers should not be given to anyone under the age of five.
- To a young child, the heat from a sparkler is equivalent to the heat from a welding torch.
- Sparklers are often viewed as being harmless but they do burn at fierce temperatures.
