Fireworks Safety

Fireworks are a great way to celebrate holidays and special events, but with that comes the responsibility to use fireworks in a safe, conscientious manner

Getting Ready…

  • Always purchase your fireworks from a reliable source
  • Store fireworks out of children’s reach
  • Be a good neighbor; Be mindful of your neighbors, their pets, animals and property
  • Provide adult supervision; never give fireworks to small children
  • Use fireworks outdoors only (never indoors), away from trees and buildings, keeping a safe distance from the viewers, vehicles and traffic
  • Have water handy, with a hose and/or buckets

Lighting Fireworks…

  • Follow the instructions as provided
  • Only an adult should light fireworks
  • Wear eye and ear protection, such as safety goggles and ear plugs
  • Light only one firework at a time, keeping your head away from the firework, and have a clear path to get away
  • Do not throw fireworks, nor hold them in your hand
  • If a firework fails to discharge, do not try to relight. Instead, douse with water
  • Do not carry fireworks in your pocket
  • Never point or throw fireworks at other people
  • Do not shoot fireworks in metal or glass containers
  • Never experiment with homemade fireworks, and never alter store bought fireworks for an unintended use

Afterwards…
