Stay Safe While Enjoying Fireworks

Attend Public Fireworks Displays
The Fourth of July is approaching, and that means barbeques and fireworks! Many people love seeing the bright colors fly through the night air, but it is important to keep in mind that fireworks are explosives, and only professionals should handle them.

A study by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) shows that more than 200 people, on average, go to the emergency room every day with fireworks-related injuries in July close to the Independence Day holiday. Follow these tips to prevent injury from fireworks:
  • Attend fireworks displays and leave the lighting to the professionals.
  • Do not try to re-light or pick up fireworks that have not fully ignited.
  • Keep sparklers away from children. They can burn at temperatures about 2,000 degrees - hot enough to melt some metals.

For more information on fireworks safety, check out the CPSC Fireworks page.
