Staying safe while using fireworks to celebrate Independence Day tops Experient Health's list of summer safety tips shared in its latest blog posts.

As warmer weather arrives and more families buy personal fireworks to use on Independence Day, Experient Health encourages everyone to follow a few extra safety tips to prevent fires and remain injury free.

"While the bright colors and flashing lights of fireworks are a great addition to a summer party, make sure you use common sense and a few basic safety guidelines to keep the fun from turning into a fire or injury," Experient Health wrote in its latest Blog post.

Experient Health, a Virginia Farm Bureau Company, launched its Blog series - Live Well, Work Well - last year to not only help the community better understand health insurance amid the changes under the Affordable Care Act, but to also showcase ways to live healthier lives. A healthy lifestyle is the key to preventative healthcare and offers the best insurance for the body.

Among the tips offered in the fireworks tips post were the following:

  • Buy fireworks from a reputable source. Do not use homemade fireworks.
  • Be sure to find out the state's laws for fireworks. Different states have different rules. Also look into the local regulations.
  • A designated adult should supervise all fireworks, and children should not handle them.
  • Use fireworks outside in a clear area away from buildings, vehicles and animals.
  • Keep a host and water buckets nearby.
  • Soak duds and spent fireworks in water before disposing of them in the trash.
  • Never consume alcohol before shooting fireworks.
  • Light fireworks one at a time.
