"TIP OF THE DAY"


Firework Safety Tips

Many people enjoy picnics, family, and fireworks on July 4. Fireworks are fun and beautiful, but they are also dangerous if not handled properly. In the month of July, an average of 230 people go to the emergency room each day due to firework related accidents. Sparklers can burn at 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, which is as hot as a blow torch. The U.S. Fire Administration urges everyone to stay safe this Independence Day, and to leave the fireworks to the professionals.

For those who decide to legally purchase and use fireworks, here are some important safety tips:

  • Keep a bucket of water or garden hose nearby;
  • Never allow young children to play with or light fireworks;
  • Don’t stand over a firework when lighting the fuse;
  • Light fireworks one at a time; and
  • Do not try to relight a firework that isn’t working properly.
