Firework SAFETY TIPS
Phantom Fireworks Vice President William Weimer offers these safety tips for staying safe around home fireworks this Fourth of July:
• Keep children at a distance.
• Brace smaller stands with bricks.
• If launching from grass or gravel, lay down a piece of plywood to create a flat surface.
• Wear eye protection.
• Keep a hose, fire extinguisher or bucket of water on hand.
• Consider animals that may be alarmed and put them in a safe place.
• Use a long-neck lighter or pyro torch to light fireworks.
• Keep a flashlight ready.
• Rake dried brush away from the area to prevent sparks from igniting a fire.
• Have a 30-foot radius for shooting ground fireworks, a 150-foot radius for aerial shells.
