FIREMAN MARC’S FIREWORK SAFETY TIPS:
- Never allow young children to play with or ignite fireworks. If older children are playing with fireworks, always have adult supervision. Example: Young Paul Dibari (pictured below)
thought it was a good idea to launch a bottle rocket at his friend. Because of this, baby Paul grew up to be terrified of loud noises and bright colors. Don’t be like baby Paul.
- Avoid buying fireworks that are packaged in brown paper. This is often a sign that the fireworks were made for professional displays and could be dangerous. Make sure fireworks are legal in your area before buying or using them.
- Never place any part of your body directly over a fireworks device when lighting the fuse. Back up to a safe distance immediately after lighting fireworks.
- Never try to re-light or pick up fireworks that have not ignited fully.
- Keep a bucket of water or a garden hose handy in case of fire.
- Never carry fireworks in a pocket or shoot them off in metal or glass containers.
- After fireworks complete their burning, douse it with plenty of water from a bucket or hose before discarding it to prevent a trash fire.
