Safety and fire prevention tips:
-Be Patient. By lighting numerous fireworks at once increases the likelihood of confusion if a problem, injury, or fire occurs.
-Use a long-tipped lighter. This provides extra safety if a firework should go-off prematurely; longer lighters may also prevent burned fingers, a common problem with typical cigarette lighters.
-Keep the audience in one area. By keeping everyone situated in one designated viewing area, allows the host to keep the audience safe from nearby fireworks and the possibility of fire.
-A bucket of water, a garden hose, and bucket of sand, or traditional fire extinguisher should be nearby in case of fire. Extinguish spent fireworks in bucket filled with water.
-Clean up afterwards. Unexploded fireworks, even small ones, can cause fire or serious injury if found by children or animals.
-Set off the fireworks on hard level surface clear from any brush or debris.
