Fireworks Safety Tips: Celebrate Safely This 4th of July

Celebrate Independence Day with your favorite fireworks! Whether it’s family, friends, or barbecue, there’s plenty to enjoy. Alongside planning your festivities, ensure you prioritize fireworks safety. Here are essential tips:

  • Always have an adult present and never give fireworks to young children, even sparklers.
  • Remember that alcohol and fireworks do not mix.
  • Only buy fireworks from a licensed store, stand, or tent.
  • Read and follow all label directions carefully.
  • Only use fireworks outdoors on a flat, fireproof surface away from buildings and debris.
  • Have a working garden hose or bucket of water handy.
  • Keep spectators at a safe distance.
  • Always wear safety glasses when igniting fireworks.
  • Light only one firework at a time.
  • Never pick up or reignite a firework that doesn’t light the first time.
  • Never place any part of your body directly over a fireworks device.
  • Never throw fireworks at another person.
  • Never carry fireworks in your pocket or shoot them from a metal or glass container.
  • Allow finished fireworks to stand for at least 20 minutes and submerge in water for at least 2 minutes. Drain and place in a plastic bag and dispose outside in a covered trash can.

Plus, we’ll add one tip of our own that’s commonly recommended in the fireworks community:

  • ABCAlways Brace Cakes

“Cake” is another term for multi-shot aerial repeaters. There are a lot of ways you can brace these, but the simplest is often just placing a couple of bricks on either side. This is especially helpful for smaller 200-gram repeaters and keeps them from moving around during their performance, which can eliminate any chance of tipping.

Follow these fireworks safety tips for a joyful and safe 4th of July celebration! Capture your memories with photos and videos for our contest – we look forward to seeing your fun-filled moments!
