What are some fireworks safety tips?
Please do not use the 911 system for fireworks complaints. Use the non-emergency phone number to register fireworks complaints and to avoid overloading the 911 system potentially delaying response for true emergencies.
•Do not allow young children to play with fireworks under any circumstances. Sparklers considered by many the ideal "safe" firework for the young, burn at very high temperatures and can easily ignite clothing. Children cannot understand the danger involved and cannot act appropriately in case of emergency.
•Older children should only be permitted to use fireworks under close adult supervision. Do not allow any running or horseplay. Light fireworks outdoors in a clear area away from houses, dry leaves or grass and flammable materials.
•Keep a bucket of water nearby for emergencies and for pouring on fireworks that don't go off.
•Do not try to relight or handle malfunctioning fireworks. Douse and soak them with water and throw them away.
•Be sure other people are out of range before lighting fireworks.
•Do not dispose of used fireworks in a combustible container.
•Ensure that fireworks are completely extinguished by soaking them in water prior to disposal.
