Celebrate the 4th of July Safely!




  • 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. The shooter should always wear safety glasses.

  • Alcohol and fireworks do not mix. Have a designated sober shooter.

  • Only persons over the age of 12 should be allowed to handle sparklers of any type, and only under adult supervision.

  • 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.
