Fourth of July Safety Tips


Fireworks cause over 19,000 fires every year. Take the proper precautions when operating fireworks.

  • Never disassemble or try to make your own fireworks.

  • Don't point sparklers or fireworks at yourself or others, especially when lighting them.

  • Only light fireworks on the ground and in dry and fire-resistant areas.

  • Don't attempt to ignite fireworks at the same time.

  • Never allow young children to handle fireworks or sparklers to prevent firework-related injuries.

  • Always keep a portable fire extinguisher close by. Also, keep a water hose or buckets of water nearby to put out fires.

  • If fireworks malfunction, don't relight them! Douse and soak malfunctioning fireworks with water, then throw them away.

  • Resist the urge to bring your dog to a fireworks display. The safest place for them is at home, where it's familiar, quiet, and not crowded.

Never allow young children to handle fireworks or sparklers to prevent firework-related injuries. Sparklers are hot enough to cause severe burns if mishandled.

  • Instead of sparklers for your children, consider these alternatives:

    • Glow sticks

    • A confetti canon or poppers

    • Colorful streamers

    • Silly string

    • A light-up laser show or digital fireworks projection
