Play safe, play cool


 

The festival of lights, Deepawali is here. The festival of lights and fireworks are fun but if not careful can be disastrous results. Here are some things you eNasha would like to remind its readers to keep in mind for a safe and fun Deepawali.

 

  • Use fireworks only outdoor.
  • Decorative electric light should never be tied to any metal poles as any current leak can energize the pole and give a shock to anyone who touches the pole.
  • The earthen lamps that we light on Diwali night are generally placed on balcony and window ledges. So ensure that these are not near any flammable material like wood, cloth or paper.  
  • Buy fireworks of authorized/reputed manufacturers only.
  • Don't throw or point fireworks at other people.   
  • Light only one firework at a time, by one person. Others should watch from a safe distance.
  • Don't ignite fireworks while holding them and bend over the fireworks being ignited. 
  • Don't tamper with misfired fireworks or approach immediately to the misfired fireworks.
  • Always use a long candle for igniting fire crackers and keep elbow joint straight to increase the distance between the body and the crackers.
  • Don't wear synthetic clothing and loosely hanging clothes. Wear thick cotton clothing. 
  • Keep a couple of buckets of water handy so that incase of fire you can extinguish it quickly.
  • In case of burns, pour large quantity of water on the burnt area.
  • In case of major burns, after extinguishing the fire, remove all smoldering clothes. Wrap the victim in a clean bed sheet. Rush the victim to a burns specialist or a major hospital.
  • In case of eye burns, wash the eye with tap water for 10 minutes and take the victim to a hospital.
