Firework Top 10 Safety Tips for Adults & Kids

Fireworks, like so many things, can be dangerous if miss-used. Treat fireworks as you would any other dangerous item, like automobiles, chainsaws, motorcycles, etc. Before using fireworks familiarize yourself with their proper use and pay attention to these safety tips. Following these tips will result in an enjoyable night for all.

1.) Children should watch and enjoy fireworks at a safe distance.

2.) If using sparklers, adults should light sparklers and immediately dispose of used sparklers in cold water. Touching the hot wire is the most common injury to young children.

3.) Take a little time to plan your firework display in the daylight to make it safe and enjoyable. Keep a fire extinguisher or bucket of water near.

4.) Keep fireworks in a closed box to avoid any stray sparks from igniting other fireworks.

5.) Read and follow the instructions on each firework. Never use fireworks while drinking alcohol.

6.) Light the firework at arm's length with a punk and stand well back once lit.

7.) Keep all flames, including cigarettes, away from fireworks.

8.) Never go back to a firework once it has been lit. Fuses can smolder, and Murphy says they will start to work again as soon as you peak over the tube to see what is going on!

9.) Don't put fireworks in pockets. Sparks can ignite the fireworks and very nasty burns will result.

10.) Always make sure fireworks are placed on a hard surface. Bricks or a bucket of sand is ideal. Fireworks placed on grass or uneven surface can fall over and shoot flaming debris where they don't belong.
