Fireworks Safety Tips By Beth Lucas on June 29, 2021

Fireworks Safety Tips

Fireworks are common at parties and celebrations in June and July. Whether you and your family and friends set off your own smaller fireworks or watch a professional show, it’s important to protect your eyes around fireworks.

Here are some tips to make sure you are safe:

  • View professional fireworks from at least 500 feet away.
  • When watching professional shows, don’t cross safety barriers to get a better view.
  • Always supervise children around fireworks, including sparklers which can get to 2,000 degrees and cause burns and eye injuries!
  • Only light one sparkler at a time. 
  • Wear safety glasses when enjoying fireworks at home.
  • Contact your local community about the types of fireworks safe to use in your community and where you are allowed to use them.
  • Never pick up fireworks that did not go off properly as they can still go off.
  • Set off fireworks outdoors in a clear area, away from houses, dry leaves, or grass and other flammable materials.
  • Keep a bucket of water nearby for emergencies and for pouring on fireworks that fail to ignite or explode.
  • If your eyes are injured by a firework, seek immediate medical help. Do not try to remove an object or rinse out your eyes.
