Holding your own bonfire / firework display?
Unless it is an organised community bonfire, it is much better to manage without a bonfire. But if you insist, please make sure sure you follow this safety advice:
Site the bonfire well away from houses, garages, sheds, fences, overhead cables, trees and shrubs AND ALWAYS AWAY FROM FIREWORKS
Build the stack so that it is stable and will not collapse outwards or to one side
NEVER use flammable liquids - paraffin or petrol - to light the fire
Don't burn foam-filled furniture, aerosols, tins of paint and bottles
Keep everyone away from the fire - especially children, who must be supervised all the time
For an emergency keep buckets of water or the garden hose or a fire extinguisher ready
Pour water on the embers before leaving
Always follow the firefwork code - fire work code and firework safety advice
Don't take sparklers to public displays, it will be too crowded to use them safely - Sparkler safety advice
