Fireworks safety tips

Article Published 06/28/2018
Here are some safety tips from the National Council on Fireworks Safety:

-Use fireworks outdoors only.
-Always have water handy (a hose or buckets of water).
-Only use fireworks as intended. DO NOT try to alter them or combine them.
-Never re-light a “dud” firework (wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water).
-Use common sense when using fireworks. Spectators should keep a safe distance from the fireworks. The person lighting the fireworks should wear safety glasses.
-Alcohol and fireworks do not mix! Have a “designated” person light fireworks.
-Only persons over age 12 should be allowed to handle sparklers of any type.
-DO NOT ever use homemade fireworks or illegal explosives; they can kill! Report illegal explosives to the fire or police department in your community.
