Firework Safety Tips
Fireworks can be great fun. Unfortunately, every year, people get hurt because they fool around with fireworks. Last year over 900 people required hospital treatment from accidents involving fireworks. Make sure you’re not one of them by following these few simple rules.
Never play with fireworks - They are explosives and can hurt you.
Only adults should light or hold fireworks.
When you are watching fireworks stand well back.
Never go near a firework that has been lit. Even if it hasn’t gone off, it could still explode.
Fireworks will frighten your pets, so keep your pets safely indoors.
If you are given a sparkler: Always wear gloves. Hold it at arm’s length. When your sparkler goes out, DON’T TOUCH IT. It could still burn you, so put it in a bucket of water.
