So, what can you and your family do to stay safe with fireworks this 4th of July? Below I have listed some tips that can help you have a happy and safe holiday:

Supervision– Children should not handle or light any fireworks, this is only a task for a proper adult. There should at all time be an adult present along with others in case of an accident happening.

Fireworks Are Not Toys– You should never hold onto a lit firework or throw firework at someone else or in the same direction as others.

Stay Sober– Do not consume alcohol or any other substances while handling fireworks. This can cause an accident and lead to serious injury.

Extinguisher– Always have a fire extinguisher available always in case of accidental fire. Also, be sure to soak fireworks in water before throwing them into a trash bin.

Animals– Animals should be kept away during festivities due to loud noises and sudden scares. Animals can be vicious and harm children and or others around them if they themselves feel threatened by the fireworks.

Fireworks, picnics and other Fourth of July traditions can be exciting and fun, but we must always remember Safety First!

If you’re planning your own Independence Day celebration, it’s important to take precautions to keep your pets safe as well as your children both during and after the July 4th festivities.
