Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service - Halloween / Bonfire Video

As you are aware Halloween, Bonfire night and Diwali are soon approaching and as a consequence more candles, fireworks and sparklers are used, increasing the risk of fire and/ or burns especially to younger children.


Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service have produced a short video on YouTube that they wish us to share: highlighting the importance of fire safety when choosing costumes/ fancy dress clothes for your children and the importance of staying away from naked flames.


Remember: If clothes do catch fire: stop, drop and roll. If someone is burnt cool (under cold water for at least 20 minutes), call (for help) and cover (first aid as appropriate).
