- 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.
