Fireworks Safety for the 4th of July

Fireworks Safety

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.

Fireworks Labels


A responsible adult should always supervise any firework activities. Never just give fireworks to kids.

Adult Supervision


Alcohol and fireworks don’t mix. Save any drinks for after the show.

Don't Mix Alcohol and Fireworks!


Always wear safety glasses when shooting off fireworks.

Fireworks Safety


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.

Proper Disposal of Fireworks


Don’t carry fireworks in your pocket or shoot them out of metal or glass containers. NEVER make homemade fireworks.

Safely Using 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.
