Sparkler safety

Bonfire safety

• One person should be responsible for the bonfire and children should be supervised
• Choose a site away from wooden fences, sheds and where children will be playing
• Never pour petrol, paraffin or meth’s on to a fire - it’s safer to use fire lighters to prevent flare-ups
