Prevent Injuries from Fireworks by following the steps below;

  • 90 percent of eye injuries are prevented by wearing the proper protective eye-wear.
  • No parts of the body should be over the firework while lighting.
  • Before lighting a firework, read the warning label carefully and follow all the directions.
  • Light fireworks outdoors and away from buildings, plants, and combustible materials.
  • Always have water handy when having a firework display.
  • Light only one firework at a time.
  • Small children should not be handling and lighting fireworks.
  • If a firework fails to work after lighting, wait 15 to 20 minutes and then dump the firework in a bucket of water and let it soak.
  • If at all possible, don’t store fireworks. If you have to store them, store them in a cool dry place and keep them out of the reach of children.
