Bonfires can be a fun way to socialize, relax and create memories, but it’s important to keep safety in mind to avoid accidents and injuries. Follow these tips: 

  • Choose a safe location: Choose a spot away from trees, shrubs, and other flammable objects. Keep at least a 10-foot radius around the fire clear of any objects that could catch fire, and be mindful of any overhanging branches or power lines.
  • Check the weather: Avoid lighting a fire in windy conditions, as this can increase the risk of the fire spreading. Also, check for any fire restrictions or bans in your area.
  • Use proper fuel: Do not use gasoline, lighter fluid, or other accelerants to start the fire. These can cause flare-ups and are extremely dangerous.
  • Supervise children and pets: Children and pets should be supervised at all times around the bonfire. Keep them at a safe distance from the fire and make sure they understand the dangers of playing near the flames.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher or water source nearby: In case of an emergency, it’s important to have a fire extinguisher or water source nearby. Keep a bucket of water, hose, or fire extinguisher within reach of the bonfire.
  • Never leave a fire unattended: Bonfires should never be left unattended. Always have someone present to monitor the fire and make sure it doesn’t get out of control.
  • Properly extinguish the fire: When it’s time to put out the fire, use water to fully extinguish the flames. Make sure all embers and coals are completely extinguished before leaving the fire unattended.

Remember, safety should always come first, so take the necessary precautions to prevent accidents and injuries.
