FIREWORKS SAFETY

Keep your family safe.

  • Fireworks can result in severe burns, blindness, scars, and even death.
  • Fireworks that are often thought to be safe, such as sparklers, can reach temperatures above 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, and can burn users and bystanders.
  • Families are encouraged to attend community fireworks displays run by professionals rather than using fireworks at home.
