Safe and Sane Fireworks

| June 29, 2017

As the July Fourth Holiday approaches, the City is urging residents to use extreme caution to avoid fires and injuries when using fireworks this Independence Day.

Here are some safety tips to follow to have a safe Fourth…

  • Purchase fireworks from a licensed fireworks dealer.
  • Observe all state laws regarding the use of fireworks.
  • Read the labels carefully before igniting any fireworks.
  • Ensure that an adult supervises all firework activities.
  • Never allow children to ignite fireworks.
  • Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks.
  • Light only one firework at a time.
  • Only use fireworks outdoors in a clear area; away from buildings and vehicles.
  • Never try to relight a firework.
  • Have a garden hose or bucket of water nearby.
  • Use caution with animals. Excitement, noise, and lights can cause fear and stress.
