Top ten tips for a safe Halloween
1 If you see material such as pallets, tyres and old furniture being hoarded in advance of Halloween please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
2 Go along to one of the City Council's organised events.
3 Do not leave material lying around that may be taken for a bonfire. Many garage or garden shed items such as petrol, white spirits, diesel, aerosols, batteries, tins of paint, bottles and tyres are especially dangerous if set on fire.
4 Explain the dangers of illegal fireworks and bonfires to children and teenagers.
5 Stay a safe distance from bonfires and fireworks – wind can carry sparks long distances and cause permanent injuries and scars. 10 Keep pets indoors on Halloween night.
6 Stay with your children and escort them on 'trick-or-treat' visits, parties and events.
7 Keep dangerous substances such as oil, petrol and diesel away from fires or fireworks.
8 Do not buy, use or supply fireworks.
9 Respect the Emergency Services, Council staff and the Gardaí in doing their jobs.
