  1. Do not let children near fireworks. Fireworks should only be handled by adults or by older children under adult supervision.
  2. Never use fireworks while impaired by drugs or alcohol. Fireworks are dangerous objects that must be handled while under a clear state of mind.
  3. Only light one firework at a time. Lighting only one firework at a time allows you to manage emergencies should they happen. Never try to relight a malfunctioning firework.
  4. Point fireworks away from people and buildings. This helps prevent accidental injuries and fires.
  5. Soak spent fireworks in water before discarding. Spent fireworks may still have the potential to relight.
