3 Safety Tips For Your Holiday Fireworks

Fireworks are such a fun holiday tradition. But like any time you’re dealing with fire, safety is key. The last thing you want to do is to call the fire department during your holiday festivities. Here are three simple but important tips to keep in mind. 

Choose the Right Location

The first step is to find a safe location for your fireworks. Open areas are best. Keep in mind that you should never ignite fireworks near buildings, trees, or any other flammable materials. The ideal locations are usually open fields, parks, or designated firework display areas. 

Use Safe Fireworks

When purchasing fireworks, make sure they are legal, certified, and come from reputable sources. Avoid purchasing fireworks from unlicensed sellers. They might be cheaper, but they might also not meet safety standards. 

Proper Handling and Ignition

Before you start, make sure that children and pets are at a safe distance. Use a long, extended lighter or an extended fuse to light fireworks, so you don’t get your hands too close. After lighting a firework, move away quickly and don’t return to it, even if it hasn’t ignited as expected. And if something does go wrong, remember to never attempt to relight or handle malfunctioning fireworks.
