Make Good Decisions.
HAVE A READY SOURCE OF WATER CLOSE BY:
Have an accessible fire extinguisher, water supply, hose or bucket nearby for emergencies. A connected hose is the best water source. During any fireworks shoot, there should always be one individual assigned as the fireman, whose sole job is to be alert and at the ready with a water source in case of emergencies. Having a fireman at the ready is especially important during dry conditions or when there is any dried grass or brush in any close proximity to the shooting site.
USE CARE IN HANDLING FIREWORKS:
Do not carry fireworks in your pocket. It is preferable to keep the products in a closed container before ignition. Always be careful in handling fireworks to prevent dropping them. Never smoke when handling fireworks.
NEVER USE THE FIREWORKS AS WEAPONS:
Never aim, point, or throw any fireworks at another person or at any property.
STORE AND DISPOSE OF FIREWORKS PROPERLY:
Store fireworks in a cool, dry place and always dispose of them properly. Dispose of the products by thoroughly soaking them with water, then placing them in a sealed metal trash container, and keeping the metal trash container outdoors. NEVER store spent fireworks indoors.
USE FIREWORKS OUTDOORS:
Never use fireworks indoors. Only use them outdoors under safe conditions.
PURCHASE FIREWORKS FROM RELIABLE DEALERS:
Buy fireworks only from reliable, licensed consumer fireworks dealers. Licensed and reliable dealers will only carry those products that meet standards set and enforced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Do not use illegal explosives. Do not alter any firework device. Do not make your own fireworks.
WEAR SAFETY GLASSES:
Safety glasses are recommended for those individuals lighting the fireworks and those individuals in close proximity of the fireworks.
BE CAREFUL WITH ANIMALS:
The noise and lights of the fireworks often frighten some animals, so it is very important that you are careful with pets and farm animals. You may want to consider moving the animals away or keeping them inside during your display. Please be considerate of your pets and animals when using fireworks.
DO NOT TRANSPORT FIREWORKS ON AIRPLANES:
It is a violation of federal aviation law to transport any fireworks device.
