How do you safely light fireworks?

As fireworks can be dangerous it is important to be very careful and take precautions on Bonfire Night:

  • Make sure that you’re buying your fireworks from somewhere reputable (for example: a supermarket, specialist party retailer etc).
  • Do not buy it if the boxes look like they’ve been tampered with or damaged.
  • Always read the packet carefully and make sure that the fireworks you buy are suitable for the place where you are going to set them off. Some fireworks can only be bought and used by professionals.
  • Just one person should be in charge of fireworks, and this person should be sober.
  • Always make you preparing in advance and in daylight.
  • You should light fireworks at arm’s length using a taper and stand well back.
  • Sparklers - Sparklers can reportedly get five times hotter than cooking oil – so never give them to a child under 5 and make sure to wear gloves when you lit them
