Bonfire safety

  • Build the bonfire away from sheds, fences and trees.
  • Don’t use petrol or paraffin to get the fire going. It could get out of control and injure you or loved ones.
  • Keep a bucket of water or a garden hose nearby, in case of an emergency.
  • Don’t leave bonfires unattended.
  • Keep children and pets away from the bonfire.
  • Don’t burn aerosols, tyres, canisters or anything containing foam or paint. They may produce toxic fumes or explode.
