Regardless of how many fireworks you intend to light, you should always prepare for the event. Some useful tips include
Space – do you have enough space to light the fireworks and retreat?
Fallout – do you have enough room to prevent the firework debris from reaching your audience?
Protection – it is our advice to wear safety goggles and protective gloves when lighting fireworks as a minimum, we are happy to recommend brands and our favourites.
Lighting – do you have enough lighting, again we recommend the use of a head torch.
Weather – If it is looking likely to rain consider ‘waterproofing’ your fireworks, placing a carrier bag or black sack over the fireworks is a cheap way to do this.
Always read the instructions, most fireworks will behave differently to others. Some cakes not only fire straight up but also fires to the side at angles, always follow the instructions to ensure your fireworks is facing the correct way.
Always follow the instructions for securing the fireworks. Cakes, candles and mines should be buried in soft ground or if you wish you can use strong wooden stakes to secure them, we recommend at least 2 stakes front and back and then securing the firework to the stakes with a strong gaffa tape. If only using one stake make sure this is at the FRONT of the fireworks, this will help prevent the firework from tipping towards the audience.
Try to prevent anyone else from coming near the area where you are lighting the fireworks from, maybe put up a barrier, again ensure the area is well lit to prevent this from happening.
If you can have a fire extinguisher available, if not have your garden house as close as possible.
Try to use Portfires to light your fireworks, Platinum provide them free of charge with all of our packages and for a small fee you can purchase separately.
NEVER lean over a firework, always light from an arm’s length.
NEVER put fireworks in your pocket
Once the firework has been lit retreat to a safe distance.
REMEMBER – NEVER RETURN TO A LIT FIREWORK
