News In Focus – Bonfire Safety - Air Date – Thursday 3rd November

2nd November 2016
Matt Freeman, News In Focus

News In Focus –  Bonfire Safety - Air Date – Thursday 3rd November 

This week’s News In Focus takes an in-depth look at bonfire and firework safety, in a bid to ensure your bonfire and fireworks night, goes with the right sort of bang!

The program will share some safety advice on a range of subjects, including how to treat burns, how to properly store and slight fireworks, plus a reminder of keeping your children safe with sparklers.

Also on the show will be advice on keeping your pets, especially dogs, calm – as fireworks can often put dogs on edge and make them panic.

Sapphire McKinnes is the deputy manager at Jerry Green dog rescue in Blidworth “It’s the noise more than anything, there are dogs who are particularly more noise sensitive than others. It (the noise of fireworks) is loud to a human being but to a dog its even more of an intense loud noise” 

“It is on an individual basis but there are certain dog breeds who are a bit more noise sensitive, sight hounds and staffies in particular, I’ve also noticed that quite a few collies can be quite noise sensitive as well” 

“The best thing to do is always keep them inside and not to let them out in the garden unless it is for a toilet break – you can buy things that can help too, those can be found at any good pet shop”

You can hear more on that, tomorrow night as News In Focus continues with Matt Freeman, 6-7pm.
