Who's setting off fireworks tonight?! ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ’ฅ

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

Fireworks are a ton of fun but carry real risks that need to be taken seriously. If you plan on lighting some here's some tips to keep everyone in your community safe and happy.

โŒ 1. Never light fireworks in dry or windy conditions.

๐Ÿ”ฅ 2. Only use fireworks in wide open areas, away from flammable items such as trees, grasses, gas tanks, and wood.

๐Ÿ’ฆ 3. Keep a bucket of water or hose nearby.

๐Ÿ‘ง 4. Children should never light fireworks themselves and need to be supervised closely at all times.

๐Ÿงฐ 5. Keep all unlit fireworks in a secure bag or container away from any source of fire until they are ready to be used.

๐Ÿ“ž 6. Be considerate and let neighbours know if you're planning to set off fireworks. Aim to finish at a reasonable time.

๐Ÿฑ 7. Keep pets comfortable and secure inside. The loud booms and flashing lights can easily scare them off.

๐Ÿฎ 8. Avoid lighting off fireworks around farm animals and be aware of any newborns or elderly neighbours who may also be affected. If possible, change locations to somewhere that minimises any disturbances.

๐ŸŒฟ 9. Be a tidy Kiwi and let's work together to keep New Zealand beautiful! Clean up any any rubbish and leave your spot better than you found it.
