Dos & Don'ts While Bursting Crackers
Burn fireworks only at outdoor
Fireworks should be got from reputed manufacturers only
Light only one fire work by one person alone
 Watch out crackers from a safe distance.
Store the fireworks at a safer place.
Organize a community display of fireworks rather than individuals handling crackers.
Always use a long candle/'phooljhari' for burning the crackers and keep your elbow straight to increase the distance between the body and arms
Keep bucket of water nearby in the case of fire to avoid serious injuries
In case of burns, pour large quantity of water on the burnt area. Then medicate immediately with doctor
In case of major burns, after extinguishing the fire, remove all smoldering clothes. Wrap the victim in a clean bedsheet.
If you find any eye burns, wash the eye with tap water for 10 minutes and take the victim to a hospital.
Don't
Don't ignite fireworks by holding them in your hand.
Don't bend over or move close to the fireworks when being ignited.
Don't burn fire works by placing it in a container
Don't near the fire work if it is misfired and don’t try rubbing it with your leg because if at all it burns then it will cause serious injuries
Don't attempt to make fireworks at home.
Don't allow small kids to handle fireworks.
Don't carry fireworks in the pocket.
Don't light firecrackers in narrow by lanes; preferably use open areas and parks.
Don't wear synthetic clothing; preferably wear thick cotton clothing.
Don't wear loosely hanging clothes; secure all clothes properly. Tie your dhupattas while buring fire works
Don't apply any cream or ointment or oil on burnt area without hearing doctors advice
Don't drive recklessly while taking a burn victim to the hospital; a delay of up to one hour is immaterial.

Thus, awareness campaigns are launched so that fatalities and injuries caused by fireworks could be brought down. All mishaps due to fireworks occur as a result of carelessness, negligence and ignorance. Simple precautions can help avoid these mishaps.
