Safety With Fireworks

Whether you use fireworks on the Fourth of July or you use them for a special event, like a birthday party or anniversary, there are some safety tips to keep in mind so that you are not harmed.


  1. If you see that there are any fireworks that have damage, then don’t use them. This includes fireworks that seem to have a frayed fuse or that might not have a stable base.
  2. Never let children handle fireworks.
  3. Don’t hold fireworks in your hand once they are lit unless they are sparklers.
  4. Keep a bucket of water close when you light the fireworks so that you can put out any fires that might happen.
  5. Try not to light them while you are near trees or dry grass.
  6. It’s a good idea not to light fireworks near buildings or cars because the sparks can land on them, possibly causing a fire to start.
  7. If you don’t have a lot of experience using fireworks, then consider going to see a show instead of trying to light them at your home.

Items like colored fountain sparklers are some of the most popular items to light at home if you choose to put on a show for family and friends. These are usually small in size, but safety precautions should still be taken.
