It’s almost the 4th of July – a great time of the year to spend time with family, friends and your neighbor celebrating our Nation’s birthday! From yard games to cookouts and wrapping up the evening with fireworks, we hope you have a wonderful time.

As we live and breath fire and hazards that can cause fire, we would like to give you a friendly reminder about safety with fireworks!

Here is a PDF from the NFPA that provides Fireworks Safety Tips (PDF).

Fireworks Safety Reminders:

  • Be safe. If you want to see fireworks, go to a public show put on by experts.
  • Do not use consumer fireworks.
  • Keep a close eye on children at events where fireworks are used.
  • Sparklers are HOT and cause injury.
