Protect you and your family by attending a public fireworks display and leave the lighting to the professionals. Stay away from back yard fireworks.
If you plan to use fireworks, make sure they are legal in your area.
- Closely supervise children around fireworks at all times.
- Little arms are too short to hold sparklers, which can heat up to 1,200 degrees. How about this? Let your young children use glow sticks instead. They can be just as fun but they don’t burn at a temperature hot enough to melt glass.
- Always have a bucket of water and/or a fire extinguisher nearby. Know how to operate the fire extinguisher properly.
