Happy Independence Day! Everyone here at StateWide Ford want to wish you safe and celebration-filled day! The Fourth of July is a happy occasion for our country as we cookout and light off fireworks as a symbol of our country’s independence. As you celebrate today, remember to keep safety a top priority as fireworks are almost always the main attraction.
Here are a list of firework safety tips to keep you and your loved ones safe. Happy Fourth of July!
- Check for fireworks restrictions in your area before purchasing and using fireworks. Purchase and use only fireworks that are legal in your area.
- Always have an adult supervise fireworks activities.
- Never allow young children to play with or ignite fireworks including sparklers.
- Dress appropriately for the occasion. When lighting fireworks wear enclosed shoes, non-baggy clothing and safety glasses.
- Do not hold fireworks in your hands or ignite fireworks that failed to detonate with the first light.
- Never aim a firework towards yourself, other people, animals, structures or flammable material.
- Light fireworks one at a time, then move back quickly.
- Keep a bucket of water or a garden hose handy in case of fire or other mishap.
- Never try to relight or handle malfunctioning fireworks. Soak them in water and discard.
- Never carry fireworks in a pocket or shoot them off in metal or glass containers.
- After fireworks complete their display, douse the spent device with plenty of water from a bucket or hose before discarding to prevent a trash fire.
