Firework Safety 101

The Insurance Agency of Dean Davis would like to wish you a happy 4th of July! Also, we would like to remind you of the important safety guidelines to ensure you have an injury-free Independence Day holiday!

  • Keep fireworks outdoors.
  • Only use legal fireworks.
  • Keep a bucket of water handy, or a fire extinguisher.
  • Never try to light a dud more than once. Wait 20 minutes after the first light, and then soak the firework in water to ensure it is put out.
  • Keep spectators away from the area where fireworks are being set off.
  • Pay extra attention to the whereabouts of children and small pets.
  • Drink responsibly, especially around fireworks.
  • Never use homemade explosives- this is the most important safety tip, as you could seriously endanger yourself or others.
  • Remain standing when handling sparklers, and only hold one at a time.
  • Drop all used fireworks into water after they are done.
