Please Prevent Eye Injuries This Diwali !!!

A Few Tips for Preventing Injuries at Home during Diwali:

1. Store your fireworks safely:In a closed box, somewhere cool and dry, out of reach of children and animals and away from all sources of heat, until the time they're needed. Locked away is best. Don't keep the box under the stairs or in a passageway.

2.Think ahead and be prepared: Before you start, make sure you'll be giving yourself enough room in a safe place to get to and from your box of fireworks while the display is going on.

3.Have a full bucket of water handy for any emergency, and for putting used sparklers into.

4.If possible do try to get together with some other families, try to go to the home with the biggest open space and safest surroundings.

5.Never try to re-ignite the fireworks that don’t light in the first instance. Never give ANY firework item to small children. Never throw fireworks at another person. Never carry fireworks in your pocket. Never shoot fireworks from metal or glass containers. Never experiment, modify, or attempt to make your own fireworks.

6.Watch that person: Keep children well away from fireworks, and never let a child handle or light one . Even sparklers can be dangerous if unsupervised! Do not give sparklers to a child under five. Make sure that children are aware of the danger.

Please Have a Safe Diwali and Take Care Of Children while they are playing with Fire Crackers ...
