For a safe festival

Life savers

Dos

*Make sure you buy fireworks from a licensed shop.
*  Always keep the fireworks in a closed box and store them away
from sources of fire or ignition,
also keep them away from the reach of toddlers.
*  Read the instructions and follow all safety precautions instructed with regard to the use of fireworks.
*  Burst crackers in open spaces like playgrounds and fields. Avoid bursting fireworks on roads.
*  Discard used fireworks in a bucket of water. This way you can avoid people from stepping on and hurting their feet from used fireworks which are thrown on the ground.
*  Keep buckets of water and blankets ready, in case a fire breaks out.
*  While lighting the crackers,
stand at an arm’s length, away from the cracker.
*  Wear thick cotton clothes while bursting crackers, so as to ensure maximum safety from fire.
*  If your clothes happen to catch fire, do not panic just drop down on the ground and roll.
