Security by bonfire making in the garden


It is important to always have a large bucket of water within easy reach if the fire should spread to dry grass or the like. The water can also be used to turn off any glow on sticks that have been used around the fire and should the damage occur, the water can be used to relieve burns.

The water can also be used to turn off the last glow properly, so you are sure that the fire can't flare up again when you leave it.

Bonfire making

  • Always use only clean and dry wood. Painted and pressure -impregnated wood must not be burned on the fire as it gives off both smoke and ash, which are toxic and environmentally harmful. Moist wood will also give a lot of smoke.
  • Never use garden waste. Garden waste develops heavy smoke and is also illegal to burn in urban areas and cottage areas.
  • Turn on with briquettes or newsprint.
  • Never use ignition fluid or gasoline.
  • Turn on with the large pieces of burn at the bottom and the tan at the top. It's like in a stove. It gives a higher temperature faster and you avoid a lot of smoke.

Security when children are present around the fire

It is especially important to think about safety when children are present around open fire.

  • Make simple and clear appointments with the children about what they must and must not do, how close they have to get on the fire and whether they have to burn.
  • No races. Agree that there is no run around the campfire and that the children must generally sit still around the open fire.
  • Think about the children's attire. Synthetic clothing can ignite at the slightest spark, so it is a good idea to avoid nylon jackets.
  • Long cords, very fluttering clothes and other things that can easily ignite is also a bad combination with bonfires.

When you have finished using the fire, make sure to turn it off completely by pouring water over the fire and spreading the ash out until cooled. Never let the fire burn out or leave it unattended.
