Tips for a safe Diwali

  1. Don’t burn firecrackers inside the house as this will have a dangerous impact on allergy and asthma patients.
  2. Never try to re-ignite the fireworks that don’t light in the first instance.
  3. Purchase firecrackers from authorised dealers and keep them away from children.
  4. When lighting fire crackers, wear close-fitting thick cotton clothes instead of loose fitting synthetic clothing and ensure that you keep a bucket of water nearby while lighting fire crackers.
  5. Preferable to stay indoors with windows and doors closed. Use an air conditioner or air purifier with a good filter during the heaviest fire works celebrations.
  6. Wear a paper or gauze mask to decrease smoke inhalation unless it interferes with regular breathing.
  7. Wash your eyes, nose, mouth, hands with warm water after exposure to firecrackers.
  8. Keep your medication within reach.
  9. Always desirable to seek medical advice at the earliest, in the first sign of breathlessness or severe non-retracting cough.
  10. Immediate first aid for eyes is to wash eyes thoroughly with potable water for 25 minutes and in case of serious infection or injury, one should consult an eye specialist within an hour.
  11. Women in later stages of pregnancy should be careful.

Tips for a green Diwali

  1. Avoid using electric lights to illuminate your home. Instead, opt for diyas (earthen lamps) and candles. This saves electricity.
  2. Limit usage of firecrackers that emit enormous smoke and sound.
  3. Dispose off waste properly after celebrations.
  4. Select eco-friendly gifts and decorating items.
