• Always use under adult supervision
  • Purchase only legal fireworks, available at approved stands
  • Read and follow instructions given on the fireworks packs
  • Always keep water and sand nearby, and a water hose pipe if possible.
  • Fireworks are for strict outdoor use.
  • Never try to make your own fireworks
  • Never relight fireworks that appear to have gone out. Wait for 15 minutes, and then soak the firework in a bucket of water.
  • Only light one firework at a time
  • Never allow small children to go near fireworks
  • Store in a cool dry place
  • Never lean over top of fireworks to light them
  • Tie hair back, wear caps, wear safety goggles and no loose fitting clothes.
  • Wear cotton clothes, and cover your body as much as possible. Shoes are a must.
  • Sparklers should be immersed in sand or water bucket as soon as they appear out – they are still very hot and are known to cause the maximum number of accidental burns to children.
  • After you finish — be responsible. Make arrangement to clear up all the mess the next morning. Wash your hands and feet, and firework material can be toxic, and s bad for your health.
