If you’ll be lighting the sky with fireworks this Independence Day, make sure you, your friends and family members follow these safety tips:
• Always have an adult supervise children around fireworks, and never let small children handle or light fireworks.
• Keep water nearby with a garden hose and bucket.
• Wear eye protection when lighting fireworks, and back away from a firework as soon as it’s lit.
• Never re-light a “dud” firework.
• Never throw fireworks or point them at people or animals.
• Dispose of fireworks by first soaking them in water and then putting them in a trashcan.
