Fireworks Safety

GENERAL SAFETY

Always read and follow directions on each item.

Children should not handle fireworks. Adults must be present and attentive.

Fireworks and alcohol DO NOT MIX!

Never place any part of your body over an item when lighting.

Always place fireworks on a hard, flat surface, as items will tip over on uneven ground.

Light fuse and get away! Ignite only one item at a time.

If an item fails to ignite, never attempt to re-light or modify it. Place used items in a bucket of water.

Only use fireworks outdoors, away from homes, buildings, trees, and dry grass.

Move your supply of fireworks away from open flames. Never carry any fireworks in your pockets.

Never aim, point, or throw fireworks at another person or an animal.

 

ARTILLERY

Always be sure to load shells correctly. Do not use tubes for shells other than the ones they came with.
