Firework Safety

YOUR SAFTEY IS PARAMOUNT TO US

Our Firework customers mean the world to us at Ghengis Fireworks and we want all our new and returning customers to be as safe as possible when using fireworks.

So we have put together this fireworks safety information page for you with all the latest safety information, Sparklers and Bonfires and we have even gone as far as to make safety videos on how to setup your fireworks and firework displays in the safest way possible.

Despite yearly safety warnings, Bonfire Night still ends in disaster for far too many families. Fireworks and bonfire evenings can provide lots of fun and entertainment for all the family when the nights are rather dark and gloomy, Fireworks light up the sky and bring joy to thousands.

As long as everyone follows the right safety procedures and remembers that fireworks can be dangerous if misused, a good and safe time can be enjoyed by everyone when we all follow proper safety procedures.

USE ONLY CE FIREWORKS

Check this when you are buying. All reputable dealers will only sell fireworks to this standard and if you are ever offered any others leave them alone!

TAKE SPECIAL CARE WITH SPARKLERS

Sparklers can be beautiful and enjoyable for young children but adults must be aware of their potential. Sparklers are the cause of a disproportionate number of injuries but only a few simple precautions are necessary.

  •  Always supervise children with sparklers.
  •  Teach them to hold the sparkler at arm’s length, but not near anyone else.
  •  Sparklers are not for the under 5s. They will be labelled as such and it is your responsibility.
  •  Have a container of water handy, big enough for the spent sparkler. Dump the sparkler in it as soon as it goes out.
