Juggling is fun but some aspects can be dangerous! The main danger with juggling is fire - fire is dangerous, so please take note of the following advice:

  • Only ever use the correct lighting fluid (paraffin); never petrol, as it is far too flamable and can be explosive!
  • Only light your equipment when you feel you are fully prepared and ready and represent as little risk to yourself and others as possible.
  • Always shake excess paraffin off your wicks first, to avoid splash back.
  • Keep your audience well away from the action: it might look good close up but it definitely won't feel it if you make a mistake!
  • Keep a suitable fire extinguishing device handy; this can be anything from a wet cloth to a complete fire extinguisher, as long as it will put out a fire. Then you and others around you will be much safer in the event of an accident.
  • When using fire, practice with a buddy, just in case you are badly injured.
  • Avoid loose fitting clothes, as these can catch easily on a burning wick.
  • Avoid synthetic materials, as these can ignite quickly.
