Firework Safety Tips

Fireworks are dangerous to people and animals and can even put property at risk.

The U.S. Fire Administration recommends the safest way to handle fireworks is to not handle them at all. They recommend instead leaving it to the professionals and attend your local firework festival.

But if you opt-out of the festival and put on a home display, remember to adhere to safety standards and other recommendations from officials:
  • Never allow young children to play with fireworks. Try to keep them a safe distance away when ignited.
  • Avoid buying fireworks that are not from professional vendors and never purchase illegal fireworks.
  • Never re-light or try and pick up a firework that has not fully ignited.
  • Do not put any part of your body directly over a firework. Keep your distance after ignition.
  • Keep a source of water handy in case of a fire or mishap.
  • Light only one firework at a time and never light them indoors.
  • Even the use of sparklers can pose a threat so be cautious with young kids.
Before you use them make sure to check your local laws about fireworks.
