Firework Safety Tips for Parents

Holidays such as the Fourth of July are fun celebrations with lasting memories. Typical injuries can be caused by seemingly harmless sparklers, firecrackers, bottle rockets, and more. Fireworks are meant to be enjoyed, but you will enjoy them more with these Firework Safety Tips for Parents.

Keep Safety In Mind

  • Create a safe zone by keeping children behind a fence or roped-off area, not allowing them by any open flames.
  • Supervise children closely around fireworks at all times.
  • Never let children light or touch fireworks.

Be Careful With Sparklers

  • Did you know sparklers can heat up to 2,000 degrees? Which is the same temperature as a blow torch and can melt glass.
  • If children are using sparklers, always keep under adult supervision and teach them how to properly hold a sparkler away from their body.
  • Do not let children wave sparklers near anyone or run with them.
  • A child-friendlier alternative to sparklers are glow sticks and novelty light-up items that will create a festive glow without the danger.

Be Prepared

  • Always have water, a garden hose, and/or a fire extinguisher nearby any firework display. Learn how to operate a fire extinguisher ahead of time with How to Use a Fire Extinguisher.
  • In case of any injuries, know where the nearest doctor or hospital is located.
