Ok this weekend we will all be out at parties celebrating the good ol’ USA and along with good eats on the grill some of us will be blowing things up. This might seem like common sense to you, but trust us, some people need this friendly safety reminder… See video above, DO NOT DO THAT!!!!
Use fireworks outdoors only.
Obey local laws. If fireworks are not legal where you live, do not use them.
Always have water handy. (A hose or bucket).
Only use fireworks as intended. Don’t try to alter them or combine them.
Never relight a “dud” firework. Wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water.
Use common sense. Spectators should keep a safe distance from the shooter and the shooter should wear safety glasses.
Alcohol and fireworks do not mix. Have a “designated shooter.”
Only persons over the age of 12 should be allowed to handle sparklers of any type.
Do not ever use homemade fireworks of illegal explosives: They can kill you! Report illegal explosives to the fire or police department in your community.
Use Caution with Animals. Be careful with animals. Noise and lights of fireworks often frighten animals.
