To All our PY Families, Friends and Neighbours.

Please be safe this bonfire night and follow the firework code. Fireworks, Sparkler and Bonfire Safety

Despite annual safety warnings, firework celebrations still end in painful injuries for too many people, including very young children.

Injury figures support the advice that the safest place to enjoy fireworks is at a large public display - far fewer people are injured here than at smaller family or private parties.

But if you’ll be having a firework party at home, you can make the occasion fun and safe for everyone by following the Firework Code, as well as some sparkler and bonfire safety tips.

From all the staff and volunteers at PYCP.

Firework Code

Only adults should deal with setting up firework displays, the lighting of fireworks and the safe disposal of fireworks once they have been used (and remember, alcohol and fireworks don't mix!). Children and young people should be supervised, and watch and enjoy fireworks at a safe distance. Follow these top 10 tips for a safer fireworks party:

Plan your firework display to make it safe and enjoyable, and ensure it finishes before 11pm
Only buy fireworks which carry the CE mark, keep them in a closed box and use them one at a time
Read and follow the instructions on each firework using a torch if necessary
Light the firework at arm's length with a taper and stand well back
Keep naked flames, including cigarettes, away from fireworks
Never return to a firework once it has been lit
Don't put fireworks in pockets and never throw them
Direct any rocket fireworks well away from spectators
Never use paraffin or petrol on a bonfire
Make sure that the fire is out and surroundings are made safe before leaving.

Did you know?

It is against the law to carry fireworks in public if you're under 18
Fireworks must not be sold to anyone who is under 18
It is an offence to let fireworks off during night hours (11pm to 7am), except on Bonfire Night (midnight), Diwali, New Year's Eve, and Chinese New Year (1am)
It is an offence under the Explosives Act 1875 to tamper with or modify fireworks

Sparkler safety
Sparklers are often viewed as being harmless but they burn at fierce temperatures, equivalent to a welding torch. Follow these top tips for sparkler safety:

It is recommended that sparklers are not given to under-5s
Make sure everyone handling sparklers wears gloves
Hold sparklers at arm’s length while being lit and light them one at a time
Don’t wave sparklers about close to other people
Never hold a baby in your arms while you are holding a sparkler
When the sparkler has finished put it in a bucket of cold water.

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 meths on to a fire - it’s safer to use fire lighters to prevent flare-ups
Keep a bucket of water handy in case of an accident
Avoid loose clothing and tie back long hair
After the party, pour water on the fire, rather than leaving it to burn out.
