Stay safe on bonfire night!

Tonight is Bonfire night, follow these guidelines, enjoy the festivities and stay safe!

  • Don’t start your own bonfire, safest way to enjoy the festivities is to go to an organised display.
  • If you are going to set off your own fireworks remember:
    • Only buy fireworks marked BS 7114.
    • Don’t drink alcohol if setting off fireworks.
    • Store fireworks in a closed box; make sure the lid is firmly closed.
    • Have a bucket of water handy.
    • Make sure you have a torch with you.
    • Light fireworks at arm’s length with a taper.
    • Never go near a firework that has been lit.  Even if it hasn’t gone off, it could still explode.
    • Never put fireworks in your pocket.
    • Never throw fireworks — this is illegal and you could get a fine of up to UK£5000!
    • Always supervise children around fireworks.
    • Light sparklers one at a time and wear gloves.
    • Never give sparklers to a child under five.
    • Keep pets indoors.

Have fun!

    we take fire safety very seriously. A lot of bush fires happen without cause in Africa and we need to ensure the safety of our kenya safari holiday clients – these are great tips for everyone to understand!

    Pets should definitely be kept indoors during bonfire night. There are a range of different pet supplies available, such as homeopathic drops and calming scents that are worth looking into for nervous pets at this time of year.
