Fireworks are a must when it comes to celebrating the fourth of July. Taking important measures to ensure the safety of yourself and others around you are just as important, too. Of course, letting professionals take care of fireworks is the easiest way to prevent injuries, but we know that many people enjoy setting them off themselves. Follow these dos and don’ts when setting off fireworks from Protect America, Inc.:
Abide by all local laws and ordinances. Make sure to check for firework bans in your city.
Store all fireworks in a cool or dry place.
Make sure people aren’t nearby when shooting.
Light one at a time and move away once they are lit.
Always have water on hand (garden hose, bucket, or fire extinguisher).
Wait 20 minutes and then soak duds in buckets of water. Soak spent fireworks before throwing them away.
Avoid fireworks in brown bags. These are usually for trained professionals only.
Don’t purchase illegal fireworks, including: M-80’s, large re-loadable mortar shells, cherry bombs, aerial bombs, or quarter sticks.
Never shoot fireworks in glass or metal containers.
Don’t pick up or reignite fireworks that didn’t go off.
Never light fireworks indoors or near dry grass.
Don’t keep unused fireworks near firing areas.
Never allow children to play with fireworks, and provide adult supervision for teenagers.
