As we head into the 4th of July, fireworks safety is paramount! Here are some guidelines to keep us all safe!

As we head into the Fourth of July holiday, we would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone about some rules regarding handling fireworks in safe manner. As always, please celebrate responsibly and take some simple, common sense precautions to ensure no one is injured as we mark the birth of our great nation. Here are a few tips to keep in mind concerning fireworks safety:


-Always wear safety glasses and do not wear loose clothing when using fireworks.


-An adult should always be present and supervise the use of fireworks.


-Read all labels and follow all instructions before lighting fireworks.


-Light only one firework at a time.


-Have a safe landing zone for aerial fireworks. Consideration should be given to wind direction and ignitability of everything in the landing zone.


-Have a fire extinguisher or a bucket of water on hand to extinguish an incipient fire.


-Never ignite fireworks while holding them. Put them down, then ignite them and walk away.


-Never ignite aerial fireworks where overhead obstructions (trees, eaves, wires, etc.) may interfere with trajectory into open air space. Never ignite aerial fireworks near an opening to a building.


-Do not point or throw fireworks at other people. Do not carry fireworks in you pockets. If one happens to ignite, severe burns may result.


-Always keep spectators a safe distance away.


-Dispose of fireworks only after you are sure they are completely out. If needed, spray them down with a hose and allow them to cool overnight. Treat them much as you would fireplace/stove ashes.
