Fourth of July Fireworks Safety

Updated: Jul 7, 2023

It is a patriotic past time that many of us grew up with. On any other day of the year, would you hand your child matches or a flaming candle to play with? Probably, a hard no.

You work so hard all year long to keep your child safe.... Don't let the 4th of July mess with your common sense.

Did you know?

Injury can be prevented!

Most fireworks injuries and deaths are preventable. CPSC urges consumers to celebrate safely this holiday by following these safety tips:

  • Never allow young children to play with or ignite fireworks, including sparklers. Sparklers burn at temperatures of about 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit—hot enough to melt some metals.

  • Keep a bucket of water or a garden hose handy, in case of fire or other mishap.

  • Make sure fireworks are legal in your area, and only purchase and set off fireworks that are labeled for consumer (not professional) use.

  • Never use fireworks while impaired by alcohol or drugs.
