Bonfires: Celebrate Safely!

Are you involved in organising a bonfire?

If you are, remember to follow this set of simple guidelines, designed to protect people, property and the environment - and to help everyone celebrate safely!

 

Put safety first:

never put lives at risk and always ensure responsible adults are in attendance at bonfires.

 

Protect people and property:

ensure that bonfires are located away from homes, play areas, fuel tanks and power lines.

 

Always consider the environment:

harmful toxins can be released when inappropriate materials are burned. Never burn tyres or any other hazardous material on a bonfire.

 

Encourage a positive atmosphere:

respect all cultures and traditions. Burning inappropriate material also includes other people’s images, flags and election posters.

 

Remember the clean up:

consider the arrangements for the bonfire clean-up and how any damaged surfaces can be restored.
