Have Fun and Stay Safe on July 4

Everyone loves July 4th fireworks!  Attending a professional fireworks celebration is best.  But if fireworks are legal where you live and you decide to set them off, follow these safety tips:

  • Never allow children to play with or ignite fireworks.
  • Follow warnings and instructions.
  • Be sure other are out of range before lighting fireworks.
  • Only light fireworks on a smooth, flat surface away from houses, dry leaves and flammable materials.
  • Never try to re-light fireworks that have not fully functioned.
  • Keep a bucket of water handy.
