Fireworks Safety Rules

Know where you can legally shoot fireworks. All local cities ban shooting fireworks within their boundaries. Additionally, fireworks may not be shot within 600 feet of a church, hospital, day care center or school, within 100 feet of a place where flammable liquids or fireworks are stored and may not be thrown from a motor vehicle.

  • Always read and follow label directions.
  • Have an adult present. Never give fireworks to small children—fireworks are not toys!
  • Shoot fireworks on level, open ground.
  • Do not aim fireworks at buildings or vegetation.
  • Always have water handy (a garden hose or a bucket).
  • Never try to re-light a “dud” firework. (Wait 15-20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water.)
  • The shooter should wear eye protection. Never have any part of your body over the firework.
  • Dispose of fireworks properly by soaking them in water and then disposing of them in your trash can.
  • Do not put fireworks that are still hot in the trash can and then put them in your garage or against your house. A fire could result.
