Fireworks Safety

It’s tradition - parades, cookouts and fireworks to celebrate the summer season, especially our nation's birthday on the Fourth of July. Before you set off the fireworks, plan carefully so no one gets hurt.
Use common sense when handling fireworks.
  • Always read and follow directions on the label
  • Only light fireworks on a flat surface away from buildings, dry leaves and flammable materials
  • Wear eye protection
  • Light only one item at a time and never re-light a "dud" firework
  • Dispose of fireworks properly. Soak in water before putting in a trash can
  • Have a responsible adult in charge
  • Never give fireworks to children
  • Fireworks are for outdoor use only
