With the upcoming July 4th holiday weekend, many of us will be heading out to watch a community fireworks display while many others will be setting up and using fireworks in their own backyards. Remember, fireworks are explosives and should be used responsibly to prevent injuries.
A person should always read and follow the directions on how to properly use the fireworks before attempting to ignite them. To promote and encourage safe usage with fireworks, we have included the following safety information.
Safety Tips from the National Council on Fireworks: 1
Remember to check your local laws to make sure that fireworks are legal in your community and you will also need to be in compliance with federal regulations. For more information regarding fireworks usage, see fireworks fact sheet.2
