During big holidays, family and friends often choose to celebrate together by lighting up the sky with a beautiful fireworks display. At Neblett, Beard & Arsenault, we want you to have a fun and safe holiday. It’s important to keep safety in mind when enjoying the outdoors, and especially when using fireworks which could cause significant harm if used incorrectly.
Staying Safe and Enjoying the Lights
Young children are often fascinated by fireworks, but adults should take great precautions around children. Small children should not be allowed to handle fireworks, and older children should be closely monitored by a responsible adult. It’s important to never take your eyes off a child handling fireworks, and teach them how to safely and correctly handle them. Anyone using fireworks or standing nearby should be wearing protective eyewear, and you should never hold a lit firework in your hand or allow others to do so.
Be Aware of Your Surroundings
Never use fireworks when impaired by alcohol or drugs. Fireworks users should be alert and oriented to their surroundings. Never light fireworks indoors, and only use them away from people, houses, and flammable material. Light one at a time, and maintain a safe distance after lighting. Keep a bucket of water or fire extinguisher within reach and douse fireworks that don’t go off or in case of fire.
