Diwali is celebrated all around India with joy, fun,and excitement. But, with that comes its fair share of downsides and safety hazards too that majority of the people need to avoid. If you want to celebrate Diwali without repenting the festival in the end, it is necessary that you include the safety measure, be it while bursting the crackers or even while lighting the lamps around the house.
In this article, we are going to be discussing some of the tips on how you can stay safe this Diwali.
Don’t relight a dud
Crackers are a quintessential part of the celebration process in Diwali and while it is not the best option if you are opting for an eco-friendly Diwali, it is necessary to ensure that you adhere to your safety rules while lighting them. It is important to ensure that you don’t try and relight a dud because you never know when or if it might burst out in the middle of nowhere causing a health hazard you possibly didn’t even think of.
Don’t wear silk
This is a very important point to keep in mind while lighting crackers. Make sure that you are not barefoot and don’t wear silk or a similar quality of material when you are lighting the crackers. If any part of the flame lands in your clothes, chances are that it will flare up and cause a mishap that you could have easily avoided if you were a bit more on the safer end.
Having a bucket of water of sand handy is important to keep the extinguished fire crackers after you are done lighting them. This ensures that the fire cracker doesn’t end up lighting further again and prevents any kind of possible accidents related to the same. It is always best to bury them in the sand for the best impacts, but if there is no access to the same, water works just as fine.
Have emergency numbers with you
Yet another important aspect to keep in mind is to ensure that you have all the emergency numbers with you, without any kind of fail. Just in case there is an emergency, you can easily get help if required.
The celebration does matter but it is also important to ensure safety first. Whatever the scenario be, make sure that you are opting for ways to ensure proper safety of you and the people around during Diwali.
