Diwali is almost here, are you ready? No, you do not need a box of crackers to begin your Diwali celebrations, but you will definitely need some safety tips with you to make sure that this Diwali is a happy one!
Here is our box of safety tips for you:
Bursting crackers might seem fun for you, but it is not at all fun for the environment or for others. The smoke released from crackers not only aggravates cough and cold, breathing problems, promotes asthma attacks but in some extreme cases can result in miscarriage as well. So this Diwali, say no to bursting crackers.
Not just cracker smoke, but cracker sound is also very harmful. It causes a high level of noise pollution which primarily bothers animals and elderly people. But it can also have serious consequences like prompting sudden heart attacks to even bursting fragile ear drums of children. Soundless crackers are a strict no-no for all.
During Diwali, we all light diyas, right? Do not take a risk and opt for cotton clothes, instead of synthetic ones, since the latter is prone to catching fire quickly.
Always have a first aid kid ready, because Diwali being a time of celebration is also a time when people tend to injure themselves in the excitement.
If you have pets at home take extra measures to ensure their comfort. Sound of crackers is quite disturbing for them, so ensure that you keep them away from that, as much as possible.
This year, make sure that you opt for a safer Diwali for you and your loved ones and have a blast!
