Firework Safety

As the year comes to an end and the excitement of the new year is here, family and friends will gather, the sky will be filled with fireworks and joy will be all around. With all the happiness filling the air, safety needs to remain as a top priority especially when using fireworks. Below are four key safety tips to keep in mind.

Use Only Legal Fireworks
Buy only fireworks that are approved by your state. Avoid buying fireworks that are packaged in brown paper. 

Keep Water Close
Do not forget to place a bucket of water nearby in case of emergency. Keep in mind to douse burned fireworks with water before throwing in the trash. 

Keep A Distance From The Fireworks
Once you have lit the fuse, move away immediately. In case the firework did not light properly, douse it with water and do not attempt to relight it.

Use Fireworks Outdoors
Remember to use only fireworks outside and away from wooden and other flammable materials. Make sure children are away from fireworks.
