Remember these firework tips in November

Every year, around the end of October and the beginning of November hundreds of people are injured by fireworks.  Most of the injuries are caused by people being careless with fireworks. Some are burnt by bonfires and others are caught up in house fires as a direct result of Guy Fawkes celebrations. So, let’s talk about firework tips that can save you this November!

Your home would be safer with a Rad Fire Sprinkler system, plus you will be fine if you take this safety advice with the sincerity it is meant.

Here’s what to do if you are having a bonfire with fireworks this year.

Building a bonfire and safety advice

  • Make sure you build a bonfire on flat land well away from buildings and wooden structures
  • Ensure the bonfire is stable and well-supported before lighting
  • Set a cordon to keep people away from the bonfire
  • Check the bonfire before you light it for small children or animals
  • Only use fire-lighters and never try to ignite the fire with petrol or other flammable liquids
  • Keep buckets of water or a hose handy to douse flames in case of emergency

It’s a good idea to have a couple of people marshalling the bonfire at all times. Plus you should keep pets indoors and pay close attention to small children that will be fascinated by the fire.

Firework Tips

  • Keep fireworks in a metal tin with a lid on the top
  • Only light one firework at a time
  • Close the lid on the firework tin between launch times
  • Light at arm’s length
  • Use a taper to light fireworks
  • Never return to a firework that goes out
  • Use approved tubes to launch rockets
  • Don’t point fireworks at people
  • Always launch fireworks in the air, away from people and property

Stay safe and enjoy this bonfire night. One way to prevent danger is to attend an organised event. That’s what we’ll be doing at Rad Fire Sprinklers – it’s safer and stacks of fun!

Mist system was a great solution for our renovation needs and them team at RAD have been great. Always communicated clearly and been on hand to discuss over the phone as needed. Would highly recommend!

I have used RAD for a couple of projects and found them to be good to deal with. They did a pair of 3 storey open plan houses and seven three and four story town houses. The sprinklers were to improve fire safety, allow more flexible space and comply with building regulations. The sprinklers were far more cost effective than the mist type systems and look very discrete when installed.

It has been a pleasure to deal with RAD for installation of fire sprinklers at our site is Sevenoaks. They were fast, professional, working to time and quote, which made it easy to work with them.

My requirement was a bit unusual for RAD in that I wanted a mist system in one room of a rented house. I had no drawings or technical back up. RAD were very helpful and repositioned the unit after the initial installation. Luckily with the help of Sonny, the engineer it all worked out very well.

I have used RAD for the last 10 years for all of my housing developments in need of a sprinkler system. Easy process from start to finish and no issues or problems throughout. Always someone at hand to answer a querie and we have a great working relationship with the team at RAD. Would highly recommend.

As somebody who feels that it should be a necessity for all properties to have fire sprinkler systems, I am a big fan of this company. I have used them numerous times to service my home system and they are very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend their service.

One look at Rad Fire Sprinkler's website will tell you that these guys know exactly what they are talking about when it comes to Fire Sprinklers and the legislation surrounding fire safety. A very trustworthy company.
