Backyard Fireworks - Tips For Enjoying Your Independence Day

2023. 10.09

Independence Day is one of the most special holidays in US. It is unique and it a day when everyone feels united by a common theme: American Pride. Synonymous with Fourth of July are Parades, BBQs, Block Parties, the colors Red, White, & Blue, Old Glory, and of course - Fireworks.

If you are preparing for this year's Independence Day celebration, we wanted to share a few tips that will help you create the best backyard July 4th fireworks display ever!

Play It Safe

You've been told this since you learned to read: follow instructions.  Firework  manufacturers always have safe operating procedures printed on their instructions. Follow them and your chances of causing an injury are reduced greatly. You definitely want to have water handy - via both hoses and buckets. Enlist some help from friends at neighboring houses to have their water handy too. If neighbors are going to be gone, ask permission to man their hoses during the show.

· Never allow young children to handle fireworks

· Older children should use them only under close adult supervision

· Never use fireworks while impaired by drugs or alcohol

· Anyone using fireworks or standing nearby should wear protective eyewear

· Never hold lighted fireworks in your hands

· Never light them indoors

· Only use them away from people, houses and flammable material

· Never point or throw fireworks at another person

· Only light one device at a time and maintain a safe distance after lighting

· Never ignite devices in a container

· Do not try to re-light or handle malfunctioning fireworks

· Soak both spent and unused fireworks in water for a few hours before discarding

· Keep a bucket of water nearby to fully extinguish fireworks that don't go off or in case of fire

· Never use illegal fireworks
