With the festival of lights just around the corner, preparations are already underway for celebrations. This is a great time for kids and adults alike to meet, greet and revel in the happiness of the festivities. Here are just a few tips to keep in mind for a safe and fun Diwali.
We all love to get dressed to the nines when we head to Diwali parties and get-togethers. Go ahead, wear your favourite piece of clothing, but remember that synthetic is a no-no if you are planning on bursting firecrackers. Have a pair of cotton clothes to put on when you are dealing with fireworks. Synthetic easily catches fire and is harder to put out.
2. Quality of fireworks
Make sure the vendor and the brand of the fireworks that you are buying is reliable. Go for conventionally trustworthy brands to eliminate the odds of a malfunctioning firecracker. Also, don’t experiment with crackers or make your own type.
3. Fire extinguishers and First Aid
Have first aids kit and a functioning fire extinguisher ready near the place of the festivities. It is also advised that you have a can of sand and water ready in case anything untoward should happen. Dial 108 in case of emergencies.
4. Crackers box
It is highly necessary to make sure that the stock of unburst fireworks are placed away from the area of bursting. There are high chances that a stray flame or partly burning particle can set off combustion in the other crackers. It’s wise to handle only as much as one needs at a time. Dumping the entire box to take outdoors can prove dangerous.
5. Open spaces
If you think you or your close ones may be susceptible to throat infection, breathlessness or any other medical condition, avoid going outdoors. If you must, you can wear a disposable face mask that you can buy online from here https://www.amazon.in/Salus-Disposable-Surgical-Face-Mask/dp/B00KQCPKV6?tag=googinhydr18418-21&tag=googinkenshoo-21&ascsubtag=986bb061-f977-40a8-9606-089aa6eb77b6/
Be alert about firecrackers while walking on streets. Make sure your vehicle is parked in an area that is not exposed to damage from fireworks.
6. Dousing crackers
Finally make sure you douse disposed and unused firecrackers responsibly and, with water to avoid the chance of it burning unexpectedly.
