Fireworks Safety Tips
If you plan on putting on your own fireworks display tonight, there are some important safety tips to remember.
Only an adult should handle fireworks. No one who is impaired by alcohol or drugs should ever handle fireworks.
Only light one firework at a time
Light each firework at arm’s length and stand back from the firework before it detonates.
If a firework fails to fire, never attempt to re-light it.
Sparklers should be immersed in a bucket of sand to cool down after burning out, as they remain very hot for some time.
Remember to dispose of fireworks safely and properly.
