Great reminder! πŸ’₯TOP 10 FIREWORKS SAFETY TIPS

It is important to ensure your entire family, from small children to older adults, refresh their fireworks safety knowledge ahead of your Independence Day celebrations.

Never allow young children to play with or ignite fireworks. Instead, consider safe alternatives, such as glow sticks, silly string, popping streamers and confetti cannons.

Always supervise children, including when using sparklers. Sparklers can cause a serious burn as they reach temperatures of about 2,000°

Avoid purchasing fireworks that are packaged in brown paper. This often indicates the devices are made for professional displays, and therefore, could pose a danger to consumers.

Light fireworks one at a time. Don’t twist fuses together as this can become very dangerous.

Don’t place any part of your body directly over a firework device. Maintain a safe distance after you light fireworks.

Keep a bucket of water, garden hose or fire extinguisher nearby. These are a safety precaution in case of fire mishaps.

Never shoot fireworks off in metal or glass containers. Avoid carrying fireworks in your pocket, as well.

Don’t try to re-light or pick up fireworks that haven’t ignited fully. It could go off while attempting to relight it, causing serious injury.

Wear hearing protection when participating in firework activities. Fireworks can exceed 150 decibels and cause immediate hearing damage.

Never use fireworks while impaired by alcohol or drugs.
