Be Safe With Fireworks Over the Holiday

If you are celebrating with fireworks this Fourth of July, please make sure you abide by the law and exercise safety precautions. Fireworks are allowed between 9 p.m. and midnight on July 3 and 4.
 
Follow these safety tips:
 
-- Never allow young children to play with or ignite fireworks.
-- Avoid buying fireworks that are packaged in brown paper, as this is often a sign that they were made for professional displays and could pose a danger to consumers.
-- Always have an adult supervise fireworks activities. Parents often don't realize that young children can suffer injuries from the heat of sparklers.
-- Never place any part of your body directly over a fireworks device when lighting the fuse. Back up to a safe distance immediately after lighting fireworks.
-- Never try to relight or pick up fireworks that have not ignited fully.
-- Never point or throw fireworks at another person.
-- Keep a bucket of water or a garden hose handy in case of fire or other mishap.
-- Light fireworks one at a time, then move back quickly.
-- Never carry fireworks in a pocket or shoot them off in metal or glass containers.
-- After fireworks complete burning, douse the spent device with water from a bucket or hose before discarding.
