I love fireworks! Sitting on the grass on a warm evening watching a great fireworks display is one of the best parts of summer. To help everyone enjoy the 4th of July and avoid injury or worse, I've gathered some safety tips!

Firework Safety Tips;

  • Never allow kids to ignite or play with fireworks
  • Always have an adult oversee sparkler use as well
  • Keep a bucket of water handy
  • Always read the instructions
  • Only purchase fireworks from a reliable source
  • Wear safety glasses when using fireworks
  • Avoid homemade fireworks
  • Alcohol and fireworks are a bad mix
  • Keep spectators at a sade distance
  • Never light fireworks near dry grass
  • Always light one firework at a time
  • Never try to relight duds or frireworks that didn't launch
  • Sparklers should be lit one at a time
  • Do not wave or run while holding sparklers, and never throw them
  • Use common sense

Stay safe and have a great 4th of July!
