“Firework injuries are currently at an all-time low,” said Michael Collar, president of Winco Fireworks. “I encourage everyone to follow the simple guidelines provided by the American Pyrotechnics Association to make sure that your holiday celebrations are not only fun, but safe as well.”
As families start to light fireworks during their Fourth of July parties at home, Winco and the APA advise that everyone uses the following guidelines when using any type of firework:
-Always read and follow the directions on the product’s label
-Have a working garden hose or bucket of water handy
-Use fireworks outdoors in a safe, flat and non-wooded area
-Keep everyone a safe distance away from fireworks
-Never allow young children to handle fireworks or sparklers
-Always have a sober adult in charge of all fireworks activities
-Light one firework at a time
-Never re-light fireworks
-Never shoot fireworks in a metal or glass container
If consumers follow these simple guidelines, they can still enjoy fireworks, even in dry areas of the country.
Millions of Americans celebrate this great moment in American history by using fireworks. By educating the public on fireworks safety, this will ensure another happy and safe Fourth of July.
