Family Firework Safety Tips!

Firework SafetyWith the 4th of July next week Firework booths are popping up all over town here and we couldn’t be more excited!

Across the country, many families will celebrate with parades, picnics, barbeques and fireworks! Regardless of how you celebrate the most important thing is to keep your family safe.

Here are my top tips for keeping everyone safe so they can have a good time.

Use Common Sense

Read all warning labels and follow directions on each firework by understanding what it’s supposed to do and what it could potentially do if something goes wrong.

Adults only

Kids should NEVER handle, play with or light fireworks.

Fireworks BoothKeep your distance

Use fireworks in a clear, open area away from buildings and vehicles. Avoid using fireworks near dry grass, brush or any other flammable item. Children and other spectators should remain a safe distance away from the lighting area. A good rule of thumb is 25-40 feet for fountains and 75-100 yards for an aerial product.

Keep Water near by

Make sure that you keep a bucket of water, a hose or an fire extinguisher near by for emergencies. Check out our Fireworks Crafts video for a DIY festive water bucket.

Celebrate with Fireworks that are approved for your community. Visit the National Safety Alliance to find an approved list.

Keep your pets safe

Pets may be frightened by the noise and lights of fireworks. You may want to keep your pets inside during the fireworks to keep them safe.
