Fireworks Safety 101

It’s that time of year, 99% of all firework injuries will happen in the next three weeks so we thought this would be a great time to talk about what you can do to minimize the possibility of injuries and enjoy a safe and happy independence day.  First we want to state that almost ALL injuries involving fireworks, are not CAUSED by fireworks…but rather the MISUSE of fireworks!  Alcohol, lack of supervision, superman syndrome and taking apart and reassembling consumer fireworks into something they were not meant to be are all reported to be involved with a very large percentage of firework related injuries.  Also noted are that over 80% of injuries from misuse are caused by rockets, firecrackers and sparkler type devices.  Very few injuries are caused by aerial type devices tipping and shooting into crowds, but this is one area where improvements in precautions are easily made so in this article we will focus on that.

How to shoot your own backyard fireworks display

From time to time we have posted tips on how to shoot your own professional quality fireworks displays using high quality consumer fireworks.  In fact, many times the consumer shows we see rival the pro’s!  We are about to step that up and take you through a series of articles and videos to really propel you to another level.  US Fireworks has made it as easy as possible for the entry level by offering pre-selected displays and including everything needed to get that display in the air…in your own backyard!  The first two to be introduced to the market are The Block Buster Display and the Noisy Neighbor Display which contains the loudest legal fireworks we stock.  Upon unpacking the cartons for set up you will find everything you need including precise instructions including how to fuse the show together and exactly how many inches apart the items should be joining the main fuse line.  If you have never tried a one fuse display then you really need to take that first step so you can light that fuse then step back and enjoy the show with everyone else!

Bottle Rockets

   One of the first items that comes to mind if you think back to your youth is probably the simple, inexpensive bottle rockets.  Well if some things don’t change in China where these small wonders that take off wish a whoosh and end with a sharp pop are manufactured they may very well become harder and harder to find.

Mortar Fireworks

Mortar Fireworks is a common search term, also known as reloadable mortar shells, actually the mortar is reloadable not the shell!  This is a sometimes misused term in fireworks so let’s set the story straight.  Shells, are the actual firework.  Mortars, are the tube the shell is loaded into and fired from.  Common, safe firework mortars may be made from cardboard, fiberglass or high density polyethylene (HDPE)  depending on the strength of the shell to be launched.  Cardboard is acceptable for some lower powered shells such as Festival Balls and Black Box artillery, however HDPE or fiberglass is almost always a better choice, and to take safety and your display up even another notch we recommend firing even consumer shells out of mortars in racks.

World Record Fireworks Launch

Here is a video we found of a possible world record fireworks launch from 2012 using a best selling item here at USFireworks! The video claims this is over 230 of the 500g cake called “Mammoth Strobe” which means that was over 2,300 shots in just a couple minutes! The sound system must have been amazing as those are some of the loudest fireworks we sell! They are made by Dominator Fireworks and are 10 massive shots of huge white strobing peonies, we thought it was cool to see something so big with one of our best selling items.

The Malta International Fireworks Festival

We love our fireworks here at US Fireworks, but the people of Malta really love fireworks!   Fireworks have two historical traditions.   The Italian tradition and the Oriental Tradition.

Fireworks made in the Oriental Tradition have become the standard commercial style of fireworks because the cost to manufacturer is lower.   Therefore, the Italian style shells are very rare and seldom seen in the USA.

What makes Italian style fireworks unique is that they use cylindrical construction, rather then spherical construction.

A photo of a Maltese style shell being constructed can be seen below:

Fireworks used in Boston Bombings?

No way, no how!  There is already silly talk of president Obama using executive order to force a nation wide ban on fireworks.  Come on people, this is not only possible it may be the biggest knee jerk reaction ever!

While the suspects may (or may not) have purchased fireworks, the amount claimed would not have near the power needed to produce the results we saw in Boston.  In Fact, there are many, many readily available common household items that are far more energetic than what the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission allows in Fireworks.
