Fireworks Safety Tips
June 28, 2011


·        Where legal, use fireworks outdoors and in a safe area away from fields, grassy areas and buildings.


·        Use fireworks in parking lots, driveways and gravel or dirt areas.


·        Keep a bucket of water, wet towel, or a garden hose hooked to a water supply nearby to quench small firesq.


·        Follow instructions carefully and use with close adult supervision.


·        Do not discard fireworks from moving vehicles.


·        Let fireworks cool, and then soak them in water before disposing of debris.


·        Use only fireworks that are approved.

  • Never re-light a "dud" firework, or one which has not detonated (wait 15 to 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water).
  • Never throw or point fireworks at other people.
