  Fireworks Night safety tips
Updated 15 October 2001, 18.07
Children with sparklers
Watching a firework display is great fun but injuries can happen if you are not careful. So here are some important safety tips to follow.

Fireworks are not toys. Never play with them, they are explosives

If you are given a sparkler, hold it at arm's length

Remember, the end of a sparkler is very hot, do not touch it even after it has gone out

Even if a firework hasn't gone off it could still explode. Do not go near a firework that has been lit

When you are watching fireworks stand well back from them

Only adults should light or hold fireworks

Remember, you must be over 18 to buy fireworks from shops

Keep your pets indoors, they get scared easily
