Fireworks Safety Tips:
Be Extra Careful With Sparklers
Little arms are too short to hold sparklers, which can heat up to 1,200 degrees. How about this? Let your young children use glow sticks instead. They can be just as fun but they don’t burn at a temperature hot enough to melt glass.
Closely supervise children around fireworks at all times.
Take Necessary Precautions
Do not wear loose clothing while using fireworks
Never light fireworks indoors or near dry grass.
Point fireworks away from homes, and keep away from brush, leaves and flammable substances
Be Prepared for an Accident or Injury
Stand several feet away from lit fireworks
If a device does not go off, do not stand over it to investigate it. Put it out with water and dispose of it.
Always have a bucket of water or a fire extinguisher nearby
Know how to operate the fire extinguisher properly.
If a child is injured by fireworks
Immediately go to a doctor or hospital. If an eye injury occurs, don't allow your child to touch or rub it, as this may cause even more damage.
