🚨10 QUICK FIREWORKS SAFETY TIPS!🚨

1. Always use fireworks outside and have a bucket of water/hose nearby in case of accidents.

2. Designate a safety perimeter.

3. Ditch faulty fireworks.

4. Supervise children when they are handling sparklers.

5. Don’t forget about your pets! Fireworks can be extremely stressful for pets. Keep your pets indoors.

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

7. Never place a part of your body directly over a firework or hold a firework in your hand when lighting.

8. Only light one firework at a time.

9. Avoid alcohol consumption when handling or using fireworks. This should be pretty self-explanatory.

10. Consider safe alternatives to fireworks such as party poppers, bubbles, silly string, or glow sticks.
