Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service would like to encourage residents to attend an organised bonfire this year, because most injuries throughout the bonfire period occur as a result of people building their own bonfires, and setting off their own fireworks.

Holding your own bonfire or 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
