Follow these Fireworks Safety Tips and have a Happy Fourth of July Holiday

Fireworks Safety Tips recommended from The Louisiana State Fire Marshal’s Office.

— Always read and follow the label directions carefully

— Always have a garden hose or water bucket nearby for medical emergencies and/or to douse spent or misfired fireworks.

— Adults should always supervise fireworks activity.

— Fireworks should be placed on a hard, smooth surface prior to ignition. NEVER light fireworks in your hand.

— Quickly light one firework at a time, and move away quickly after lighting.

— Never point or throw fireworks at people, pets, cars, or buildings — Keep fireworks away from small children.

— Do not alter or make your own fireworks.

— After displays, never pick up fireworks that may be left over. Fireworks that have been ignited and fail to immediately explode or discharge can cause injury, as they may still be active. Children should always tell an adult if they find fireworks rather than picking up smoking or charred fireworks themselves.

  1. and lets remember to fire are guns into the air come one people
    let not let alcohol ruin this year.Party on !!

  2. Please refrain from buying those really loud ones. Those that sound like cannons. My 13-yr-old Yorkie may not survive another barrage from the neighbors. The regular bottle rockets and sparklers and such provide enough to celebrate the 4th.

    Be considerate.

    • Amen to that, Harry. Our fur babies have always hidden during the holidays, especially when we lived close to the lake front. Every weekend in December, Natchitoches pets have anxiety attacks.

      Special wuvs to your Yorkie 🙂
