Before the 4th of July, we featured some important fireworks safety tips each day this week.
Always start by reading all of the labels and info on your fireworks carefully.
A responsible adult should always supervise any firework activities. Never just give fireworks to kids.
Alcohol and fireworks don’t mix. Save any drinks for after the show.
Always wear safety glasses when shooting off fireworks.
Never relight a firework that you think is a dud. Wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water to make sure it doesn’t go off later.
Don’t carry fireworks in your pocket or shoot them out of metal or glass containers. NEVER make homemade fireworks.
Throw away used fireworks by wetting them down in a metal trashcan away from buildings or anything that could catch fire until the next day.
