Advice to stay safe on November 5 from Bonfire Night Health & Safety

Lay out the firework while it's standing on its bottom or its stand. Adults need to make sure that there are no flammable materials or plants nearby.

The adult will then need to warn people in the area that they are about to light the firework.

Once the firework is lit the adult will make sure no one else is in the vicinity of the firework and walk away.

An adult will have to have a bucket of water nearby to store the used fireworks.

When the night is over, it's safe to put the wet fireworks in the bin.
