10 Firework Safety Tips Posted on 3 November 2017 by Rebecca Taylor and Becky Duncan, Kent-Teach in General Bonfire night (Guy Fawkes Day) is fast approaching (5th November!) and the weekend will likely be filled with exciting firework events across the county, whether this be at a public show or at home.Whilst there are many fun events you may be attending with your families, it’s important to remember the safety precautions we all must take to ensure we keep safe. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA) work hard to raise awareness of the seriousness of accidents and state that sadly more than 14,000 people lose their life as a result of an accident, across the UK each year. Firework celebrations still end with many people getting injured, despite annual safety warnings so we wanted to help raise awareness and ensure people are mindful of this; the safest place to enjoy fireworks is at a large public display so if you haven’t yet planned anything in advance why not visit a local fun event!To ensure you keep safe and enjoy the weekend to the max, check out these 10 tips for safer firework parties, by the ROSPA:Note: It is important that adults deal with setting up firework displays, including the lighting of fireworks and the safe disposal of them. We hope you have a wonderful safe weekend celebrating Guy Fawkes Day! Bonfire night is fast approaching…children and grownups wait patiently to observe the bursts of magical colour explosions.
