How to a Fun, Safe Fourth of July

Family gatherings and friends getting together for grilling is a Fourth of July tradition! Follow these simple tips for a safe and fun holiday!

Never allow young children to play with fireworks! Children do not understand the danger sparklers pose. Sparklers burn at 1800 degrees--which melts gold!

Light fireworks outdoors in a clear area away from houses, dry leaves or grass.

Do not try to relight or handle malfunctioning fireworks. Douse and soak them with water and throw them away. Keep a bucket of water nearby for emergencies.

Store fireworks in a dry, cool place!
