Safety tips from the National Council on Fireworks Safety

Check for local restrictions before lighting fireworks. (see information below)

  • Use fireworks outdoors only.
  • Obey local laws. If fireworks are not legal where you live, do not use them!
  • Always have water handy (a hose or buckets of water).
  • Only use fireworks as intended. DO NOT try to alter them or combine them.
  • Never re-light a “dud” firework (wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water).
  • Use common sense when using fireworks. Spectators should keep a safe distance from the fireworks. The person lighting the fireworks should wear safety glasses.
  • Alcohol and fireworks do not mix! Have a “designated” person light fireworks.
  • Only persons over age 12 should be allowed to handle sparklers of any type.
  • DO NOT ever use homemade fireworks or illegal explosives. Report illegal explosives to the fire or police department in your community.
