Sainsbury’s Nine Elms Point joins forces with local fire service to help customers stay safe this firework season.
The fire-fighting team will be in store Saturday 22nd October
Crew members from Lambeth Red Watch – London Fire Brigade will be making a special visit to the supermarket to provide hints and tips to help Lambeth and Wandsworth customers stay safe during the firework season.
The fire-fighting team will be at the store on Saturday 22nd October 2016 from 11:00am for a few hours. They will be based in the store’s Foyer area on the day and will be handing out useful leaflets with information that customers can take away with them.
Store Manager, Andy Robins, said: “As a store which sells fireworks, it’s really important that we act as a responsible retailer and make sure that our customers can take away some safety tips when using fireworks. That’s why we’re delighted to be partnering with Lambeth Red Watch – London Fire Brigade this firework season and we hope our customers will take away some great advice when the fire-crew visit the store”.
Some top tips this firework season include:
- Keep fireworks in a closed tin or box
- Light fireworks at arm’s length using a taper or fireworks lighter
- Never go back to a lit firework
- Never throw a firework
- Light sparklers one at a time and never give sparklers to children under the age of 5
- Dispose of sparklers in a bucket of water as soon as they’ve finished
