You should only buy fireworks from licensed outlets. Store your fireworks in a cool, dry place. Young children should never be allowed to play with fireworks, not even sparklers. Older children should be supervised closely. Light fireworks outdoors in a clear area away from flammable materials. Always have water nearby. Make sure people are out of range before lighting fireworks. Light one at a time, then move back quickly. Never stand over fireworks when lighting. Don’t try to relight or handle dud fireworks. Soak them with water and throw them away. Never ignite fireworks in any kind of container. Never experiment with homemade or altered fireworks. Never point or throw fireworks at people or animals. Dispose of fireworks properly by soaking them in water first.
