Safety Tips during Fireworks


Remember the following while handling fireworks during the Independence Day celebration:

Avoid handling wet fireworks since water might degrade the explosive chemicals inside.

Avoid fireworks that are quite old or are leaking. Use sparklers and safe fireworks.

Have a bucket of water ready when you are going to start the fireworks.

Be sure other people are out of range or stand a safe distance away while lighting fireworks.

Keep unused fireworks safely out of the reach of children.

Always check and read the label on fireworks before lighting.

The firework debris should be disposed in safe plastic bags.
