The 4th of July is a time for celebration, but it is crucial to remember the importance of firework safety to ensure a memorable and injury-free holiday. Here are some essential tips and guidelines to keep in mind:

  1. Handle with Care: Always read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for lighting and using fireworks. Choose a clear, open area away from buildings, trees, and dry grass.
  2. Keep Water Handy: Have a bucket of water, a fire extinguisher, or a garden hose nearby to quickly extinguish fireworks or in case of emergencies.
  3. Wear Safety Gear: Protect yourself by wearing safety goggles to shield your eyes and gloves to safeguard your hands when handling fireworks.
  4. Adult Supervision: Fireworks are not toys and should only be handled by responsible adults. Children should never handle fireworks, and adults should supervise all firework activities.
  5. What to Do If Injured: In the unfortunate event of a firework-related injury, seek immediate medical attention. Contact emergency services, and follow medical advice to ensure proper treatment and care.
  6. Prevention Strategies: Avoid accidents by refraining from mixing alcohol with fireworks, never attempting to make or use homemade explosives, and never relighting a “dud” firework.
