“It's part of tradition to have fireworks for July Fourth and New Year's, so it's just really difficult to get people to stop using fireworks.” -Randy Jenkins You should always think about safety first when dealing with fireworks. Did you know that about half of the injuries related to fireworks are among children younger than 15 years?
Tip #1 Tip #2 Teach children "Stop, Drop and Roll" if their clothes catch fire, and show them how to put out fireworks by using water or fire extinguisher. Never let kids use fireworks by themselves, because even Sparklers that are considered as safe for children, burn at very high temperatures of 1832º - 3632º Fahrenheit and can easily ignite clothing.
Tip #3 Tip #4 Keep any type of ladder, pole, or tie lines used to set up fireworks at least ten feet from power lines. Tip #5 Never carry fireworks in your pocket or use them indoors, and don’t ever relight a used firework. Make sure to light fireworks only on a smooth, flat surface away from the house, dry leaves, and flammable materials.
Tip #6 Tip #7 Alcohol and Fireworks is an explosive mix. So don’t light fireworks if you’ve consumed alcohol. Make sure to purchase legal fireworks only. Also, don’t make your own fireworks or use homemade fireworks.
Tip #9 Tip #10 Many pets are terrorized by fireworks. Ensure that your pets are in an area they feel secure in, or lock them indoors. Don't take them to community fireworks displays. Clean up all the sticks, wires, tubes, etc., that are left around after your fireworks. Soak them overnight in a bucket of water to be sure they are out.
