June Tips of the Month: Fireworks Safety Tips
  • Always read and follow label directions.

  • Have an adult present.

  • Buy from reliable sellers. The Consumer Product Safety Commission requires that legal fireworks show the name of the item, the name of the manufacturer or distributor and easy to read cautionary labeling and instructions for proper use.

  • Avoid sparklers. They can potentially catch clothes or hair on fire, and they can heat up to 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit (hot enough to melt gold).

  • Have water handy if you are around fireworks.

  • Use fireworks in the outdoors only. Light fireworks in a clear area away from houses, dry leaves or grass and flammable materials.

  • Never make your own fireworks.

  • Never re-light a "dud" firework (wait 15 to 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water).

  • Never point or throw fireworks at another person.

  • Never carry fireworks in your pocket.

  • Never shoot fireworks into metal or glass containers.

  • Store fireworks in a dry, cool place. Check instructions for special storage directions.

  • Observe local laws.

  • Be sure other people are out of range before lighting fireworks. Bystanders are more frequently injured by fireworks than the people who use them.

  • Never let children handle or light fireworks.

  • Never light more than one firework at a time.

For the safest of holidays let the professionals handle the fireworks. Enjoy one of the many fireworks displays held in the area.
