With fireworks sales just days away it is a good time to remind everyone that personal fireworks require personal responsibility. With a little care and planning you can ensure that your family has a fun and safe Fourth of July:

·         Check with your local fire or police department

o   Be sure the fireworks you purchase are legal to possess and discharge

o   Know the dates and times fireworks are allowed in your community

o   Only purchase legal consumer fireworks


·         Children should not be able to readily access fireworks in the home

o   Store fireworks in a secure location to prohibit access 

o   Purchase the day intended to use the fireworks


·         Use care in selecting the area where you will be discharging fireworks

o   Follow the directions and warning listed on the firework

o   No fireworks without adult supervision

o   Summer weather conditions make grass and other vegetation dry and vulnerable to fire

o   Do not allow children to play with fireworks under any circumstances


Remember the three B’s of fireworks safety: 

  • Be Prepared – Have water nearby and put pets indoors

  • Be Safe – Only adults should light fireworks

  • Be Responsible – Clean up fireworks debris
