Louisiana Fireworks Supports Fireworks Safety for Holiday Season

Louisiana Fireworks Superstores Promote Fireworks Safety for Christmas & New Year’s Eve celebrations in Louisiana where Permitted by Law

Denham Springs, LA (PRWEB) December 23, 2013

Louisiana Fireworks stores will open for business statewide from December 15 through New Year’s Day. While some states prefer to halt the selling of fireworks after July 5th, other communities allow sales and use of select consumer fireworks in the winter season, where permitted by federal regulations. Louisiana Fireworks is taking the initiative to remind customers at all Firework locations to be safe and be careful lighting fireworks near objects such as flammable Christmas decorations.

“At Louisiana Fireworks we take fireworks safety very seriously. We want to make sure folks know how to properly shoot fireworks around flammable decorations so everyone has a great and safe new year,” Jason Marietta, Louisiana Fireworks mentions. “It’s important to us to share what we know about firework safety with the Louisiana communities.”

A government study held in 2011 states that sixty-five percent of all firework injuries occur on or around the July 4th holiday with a small spike during New Years Eve and other national holidays, with hundreds of people on average go to the emergency room and a small amount of deaths occurred related to homemade pyrotechnics.

“We are proud to provide Louisiana residents with some of the safest and best quality fireworks available,” Marietta says. Louisiana Fireworks is proud purveyor of World-Class brand Fireworks. “We are happy that our customers can safely enjoy our fireworks in the both in the summer and winter holiday seasons.”    

Most Louisiana Fireworks locations are open from December 15th - Jan 1st for a short winter season.
