  2. Keep fireworks in a closed box and use them one at a time

  3. Read and follow the instructions on each firework using a torch if necessary

  4. Light the firework at arm's length with a taper and stand well back

  5. Keep naked flames, including cigarettes, away from fireworks

  6. Never return to a firework once it has been lit

  7. Don't put fireworks in pockets and never throw them

  8. Direct any rocket fireworks well away from spectators

  9. Never use paraffin or petrol on a bonfire

Young people should watch and enjoy fireworks at a safe distance and follow the safety rules for using sparklers. Only adults should deal with firework displays and the lighting of fireworks. They should also take care of the safe disposal of fireworks once they have been used.

With some firework displays overlapping with Halloween this year, be especially careful with - or avoid - the combination of fancy dress and sparklers or bonfires. For more information on how to keep safe, visit www.saferfireworks.com.
