Fire Safety Tips

Do's & Don'ts & While Bursting Crackers

Do's:

  • Use fireworks only in the outdoors.
  • Buy fireworks of authorized/reputed manufacturers only.
  • Light only one firework at a time, by one person. Others should watch from a safe distance.
  • We request you not to accept any parcel in a damaged condition. We are working hard to make our transportation system to deliver every order in a good condition.
  • Keep the fireworks to be used at a safer place.
  • Organize a community display of fireworks rather than individuals handling crackers.
  • Always use a long candle `phooljhari` for igniting fire crackers and keep elbow joint straight to increase the distance between the body and the crackers.
  • Keep two buckets of water handy. In the event of fire, extinguish flame by pouring water from the buckets. Every major fire is small when it starts.
  • In case of burns, pour large quantity of water on the burnt area.
  • In case of major burns, after extinguishing the fire, remove all smoldering clothes. Wrap the victim in a clean bed sheet.
  • The patient should be taken to a burns specialist or a major hospital. Don`t panicky.
  • In case of eye burns, wash the eye with tap water for 10 minutes and take the victim to a hospital.

Don'ts:

  • Don't ignite fireworks while holding them.
  • Don't bend over the fireworks being ignited.
  • Don't ignite fireworks in any container.
  • Don't approach immediately to the misfired fireworks.
  • Don't tamper with misfired fireworks.
  • Don't attempt to make fireworks at home.
  • Don't allow small children to handle fireworks.
  • Don't throw or point fireworks at other people.
  • Don't carry fireworks in the pocket.
  • Don't store firecrackers near burning candles and diyas.
  • Don't light firecrackers in narrow by lanes; preferably use open areas and parks.
  • Don't wear synthetic clothing; preferably wear thick cotton clothing.
  • Don't wear loosely hanging clothes; secure all clothes properly.
  • Don't apply any cream or ointment or oil on burnt area.
  • Don't drive recklessly while taking a burn victim to the hospital; a delay of up to one hour is immaterial.
