Pumpkins, Bonfires and Fireworks

This year, as there are unlikely to be any organised events, more people may be celebrating Halloween and Fireworks Night at home; we would like everyone to stay safe and have fun.

For younger children, the delight of spooky pumpkin faces, colourful fireworks, flickering bonfires and sparkling sparklers are great fun; but as with all flames we must help them understand how to be very careful around them.

Halloween Trail:

Look out in your local area to see if there is a DWFRS Halloween Trail. This is aimed at younger children, to get out and about in a Covid Secure way with their parents/carers. In the areas where it is running, local shops and organisations are displaying Pumpkin posters with a safety message and hidden letter. Spotting the hidden letter, the children then work out the answer to the secret safety message.

There are Halloween Trails at:

You can enter using this online form via your phone or download this paper copy and email to [email protected] or post to : Halloween Trail, DWFRS HQ,  Five Rivers Leisure Centre, Hulse Road, Salisbury SP1 3NR.

All entries must be received by the 9th November 2020. Please remember to put the Trail Number on your entry to ensure they are entered into the prize draw. Please click here for full terms and conditions.

Once your child has completed the trail please print off a certificate for them. You can print this in colour or black and white for your child to colour in.

Visit our Halloween Safety page for more information on staying safe this Halloween.

When you are doing the Halloween Trail, remember to be Covid Safe:

Thank you to the local businesses and organisations who have kindly agreed to support the DWFRS Halloween Trail.

Think! Road safety!

Bonfire Night Safety Story:

Tim and Lilly are disappointed that there are no organised firework displays this year, but then Grandad suggests having some in the garden. Listen to Firefighter Paul telling you about their evening and how you can stay safe. A DWISE Safety Story aimed at younger children, allowing you to discuss with your child how to keep themselves safe. After listening to the story why not practice stop, drop and roll with them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9G0-IvLq728

Pumpkin, Fireworks and Bonfire Safety Tips

If you are having a carved pumpkin, remember to be very careful near it, especially if children are dressing up. Instead of a real flame you could use an LED tea light, candle or glow sticks.

If you do intend to have fireworks or a bonfire at home please remember to follow the fireworks code.

Sparklers

Fireworks

Bonfires

Pets

Remember pets can get very scared by fireworks, keep your pets safely indoors if you can on bonfire night.
