Fireworks Fun & Saftey!

Holidays like the May 24th, Canada Day, July 4th and other celebrations can be fun times with great memories. But make sure everyone knows about fireworks safety. 

What Are the Dangers of Fireworks?

If not handled properly, fireworks can cause burns and eye injuries in kids and adults. The best way to protect your family is not to use any fireworks at home — period. Attend public fireworks displays, and leave the lighting to the professionals.

Lighting fireworks at home isn't even legal in many areas, so if you still want to use them, be sure to check with your local police department first.

Saftey Tips:

Buy fireworks only from licensed outlets.
  • Store fireworks in a dry, cool place.
  • Never allow young children to play with fireworks, not even sparklers.
  • Supervise older children closely.
  • Light fireworks outdoors in a clear area away from flammable materials.
  • Keep water nearby. Be sure people are out of range before lighting fireworks.
  • Light one at a time, then move back quickly.
  • Never stand over fireworks when lighting.
  • Don’t try to relight or handle dud fireworks.
  • Soak them with water and throw them away.
  • Never ignite fireworks in any kind of container.
  • Never experiment with homemade or altered fireworks.
  • Never point or throw fireworks at people or animals.
  • Dispose of fireworks properly by soaking them in water first.
