Purchase only legal fireworks. Purchase only the quantity that you will use. Ensure the safety of pets. Keep a bucket of water nearby in which to place all used fireworks. Have a water hose or fire extinguisher nearby to put out stray sparks. Clear a level area away from things that can burn. Know the emergency number to call (9-1-1), your address/location and basic first aid. Teach your children to “stop, drop and roll” if their clothes catch fire.
When lighting fireworks – “Be Safe!”
Only adults should light fireworks. Use eye protection and wear safety goggles. Light only one device at a time. Keep spectators at a safe distance. Use only outdoors, away from anything that can burn. To prevent injuries, follow the directions on the label carefully. Be considerate of your neighbors, family pets and your environment.
When Finished – “Be Responsible!”
Clean up all debris when finished. Duds can be dangerous; if a device does not light or fire, an adult should wait at least 5 minutes, approach it carefully and place it in a bucket of water. Make sure unused fireworks, matches and lighters are out of sight and reach of children.
