- — 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.
