SAFETY, TIPS & EDUCATIONS

Safety Tips

If your state allows the use of consumer fireworks, remember that even legal fireworks can cause injury if they’re not used properly. Follow these rules to celebrate safely:

  • Always have an adult present and never give fireworks to young children, even sparklers.
  • Remember that alcohol and fireworks do not mix.
  • Purchase legal consumer fireworks from a licensed store, stand or tent.
  • Read and follow the directions on the labels.
  • Only use fireworks outdoors away from buildings on a flat, level, hard, fireproof surface that is free from debris.
  • Have a working garden hose or bucket of water handy.
  • Keep spectators at a safe distance.
  • Always wear safety glasses when igniting fireworks.
  • Light only one firework at a time.
  • Never pick-up or re-ignite a firework that doesn’t light the first time.
  • Never place any part of your body directly over a fireworks device.
  • Never throw fireworks at another person.
  • Never carry fireworks in your pocket or shoot them from a metal or glass container.
  • Allow finished fireworks to stand for at least 20 minutes and submerge in water for at
    least 2 minutes. Drain and place in a plastic bag and dispose outside in a covered trash can.Read More at:
