The 4th of July is only a few days away. Here are very important #fireworks
safety tips you should keep in mind to safely enjoy Independence Day:
• Keep #sparklers
away from your face, clothing and hair. Sparklers can reach 1,800°F. That is hot enough to melt gold.
• Wear closed-toe shoes when holding sparklers. When sparks drop down, you are at risk of burning your feet.
• Keep pets indoors when going to the fireworks show to reduce the risk of injury and prevent your pets from running loose. Pets have sensitive ears and they can be easily frightened or stressed by the sound of fireworks.
• Respect safety barriers at the fireworks show. Do not attempt to go closer to the firing site. The best view for fireworks is a quarter of a mile or more away from the firing site.
