Fireworks Safety



  • Use fireworks only as intended; do not try to alter or combine them.


  • Obey local laws. If fireworks are not legal in your area, do not use them.


  • Children under 12 should not handle sparklers of any type.


  • Alcohol and fireworks do not mix. Always have a designated “shooter.”


  • Always have water handy in a bucket or a hose.
