Avoid participating actively in the correfoc if you wear synthetic-fiber clothing as, in case of an unfortunate event, this fabric will easily catch fire and you may get burnt. • If, for any reason, your clothing catches on fire, lay yourself on the ground and roll to put out the flames. Above all, do not run, as flames will spread and things could get worse. • Wait for the correfoc along wide streets and avoid crowds as far as possible. • Do not invade the space where the fire group is performing and don’t hinder or get hold of any of its members. • Fire cannot be lit and smoking is not allowed close to bags, pyrotechnic material or the equipment carriers used by these groups. • People participating should maintain an adequate and safe distance to be safe from sparks and detonations of pyrotechnic products. • Public who wants to participate actively in the correfoc must follow the safety rules: - Wear fireproof clothing and footwear, and in no case synthetic fiber clothing, wear a hat or scarf to cover your head, wear sport shoes or hard footwear, and never sandals or flip-flops. - Always jump forward and never backward, individually or in very small groups, never getting in between the drums and/or the peformers, and do not hinder any member of the groups. • Follow the instructions of the public order services at all times. In all cases and also in the event of an accident, failure to comply with these safety measures and recommendations pertaining to fire peformances will be the responsibility of every individual. • The public order service has the right to expel from the correfoc those people who do not wear appropiate clothing for the performance and who do not behave properly and/or according to the rules.
