Safety Tips

Should you and your family and friends choose to hold your own fireworks celebration please consider the following safety tips:

  • Children should never play with fireworks. Firecrackers, rockets, and sparklers are not toys. If you give kids sparklers they must be supervised, make sure they keep them outside and away from their face, clothing, and hair. Sparklers can reach 1,800°F which is hot enough to melt gold.
  • Buy only legal fireworks (legal fireworks have a label with the manufacturer’s name and directions), and store them in a cool, dry place. Illegal fireworks usually go by the names M-80, M100, and blockbuster.
  • Always use fireworks outside and have a bucket of water and a hose nearby in case of accidents.
  • Do not hold fireworks in your hand or have any part of your body over them while lighting. Wear some sort of eye protection, and avoid carrying fireworks in your pocket as the friction could set them off.
  • Point fireworks away from homes, and keep away from leaves and flammable substances. The National Fire Protection Association estimates that local fire departments respond to more 50,000 fires caused by fireworks each year.
  • Soak all fireworks in a bucket of water before throwing them in the trash can.
  • Think about your pet. Animals have sensitive ears and can be extremely frightened or stressed on the Fourth of July. Keep pets indoors to reduce the risk that they’ll run loose or get injured.
