4 Tips for the Fourth

Fireworks can be dangerous, so it’s best to let the professionals handle the show. However, if you do plan to use fireworks, make sure they are legal in your area and follow these safety tips:

1.Never allow young children to play with, ignite or come close to fireworks — including sparklers.

2.Keep all body parts away from a firework when lighting a fuse. Only light 1 at a time and back up to a safe distance after lighting it.

3.Never pick up or try to re-light fireworks that have not ignited fully. 

4. Keep a bucket of water or hose nearby in case of fire. Douse all spent fireworks with plenty of water before discarding them.
