Fireworks night is super fun, and many people look forward to it all year. When you’re visiting a display, stay out of the firework lighting area completely. The organizers will have experts to do this, and they don’t need your help, or advice.
The same goes for the lighting of the bonfire. Stay out of the way, and once it’s lit, don’t come close, try to warm your hands or toast marshmallows. Official bonfires can be absolutely massive, and if any part of it slips, burning firewood could come showering down, and you don’t want to be too close when that happens.
If you’re organising your own display, similar rules apply. Be really careful when you’re lighting your bonfire, and don’t add petrol or meths to get it started. Don’t let people stand too close, and make sure that you stack the whole thing up properly and logically before you light it.
If you have suffered personal injury at any of these types of events and the organisers were to blame, get in touch with the specialist Sheffield accident claim solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline to get expert help with a compensation claim.
Check your bonfire first
Another quick tip is to check for hedgehogs and other wildlife who may have made the wood pile into a home for the winter. Do this before lighting it, or you may have a very hot and scared little creature running out of the flames.Open Claim Calculator
When you’re lighting the fireworks themselves, light one at a time, and stand well back. If one fails to go off, don’t rush to check it, as it could just be a little bit delayed and then go off in your face. When you’re the one in charge, don’t drink too much alcohol, as you need to stay sensible.
