Fireworks Safety Tips


  1. A responsible adult should supervise all firework activities if you're setting them off at home. Never give fireworks to children. 

    Alcohol and fireworks don't mix well. Have a designated person light all of the fireworks and supervise the activity.

  2. Light one firework at a time and then quickly move away to a safe area. For extra safety, wear protective glasses when shooting fireworks.

    Never relight a "dud" firework. Wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water. You never know if it has an extra long fuse and will go off when you get close to it.

  3. Always have a bucket of water and a water hose nearby to put out any fireworks or charged fireworks.

    Dispose of used fireworks by wetting them down and place them in a metal trash can away from any building or combustible materials until a day has passed.

  4. Never point or throw fireworks at another person or building.
    Be aware of sparklers as well; they can burn hot enough to melt some metals which means they can also cause injuries.

  5. Avoid buying fireworks packaged in brown paper. This is often a sign that the fireworks were designed for professional displays and they could pose a danger to casual consumers.

I know a few people I should probably print this list out for. Why do fireworks make people make such bad ideas. LOL

Maybe there's just something in our genetics that is from the cavemen who first discovered fire and we're just still fascinated by it haha
