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.
