Fireworks Safety Begins with You

"The only thing that tops quality fireworks, is a high level focus on safety!"

 

Pyroland Fireworks supports the safe use of fireworks and reccomends these safety tips:

  • Obey all local laws regarding the use of fireworks. 
  • Make sure fireworks are legal in your area before buying or using them.
  • Use fireworks outdoors in a clear area, away from buildings and vehicles.
  • Always have a bucket of water and charged water hose nearby.
  • Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks.
  • Know your fireworks; read the cautionary labels and performance descriptions before igniting.
  • 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.
  • A responsible adult should supervise all firework activities. Never give fireworks to children; this includes sparklers.
  • Never allow young children to play with or ignite fireworks.
  • Alcohol and fireworks do not mix. Save your alcohol for after the show.
  • Light one firework at a time and then quickly move away.
  • Never try to re-light or pick up fireworks that have not ignited fully.  Wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water.
  • Never carry fireworks in your pocket or shoot them from metal or glass containers.
  • Do not experiment with homemade fireworks.
  • Dispose of spent fireworks by wetting them down and placing them in a metal trashcan, away from any building or combustible materials until the next day.
  • FAA regulations prohibit the possession and transportation of fireworks in your checked baggage or carry-on luggage.
  • Report illegal explosives, like M-80s and quarter sticks, to the fire or police department.
  • Avoid buying fireworks that are packaged in brown paper because this is often a sign that the fireworks were made for professional displays and that they could pose a danger to consumers.
  • Never point or throw fireworks at another person.
  • Always have an adult supervise fireworks activities. Parents don’t realize that young children suffer injuries from sparklers. Sparklers burn at temperatures of about 2,000 degrees – hot enough to melt some metals.
