Fireworks can be a lot of fun. They look eye-catching and striking. They’re festive. What’s not to like? But if you’re going to be anywhere around them, you have to understand the immense value of safety.
Do's & Don'ts to prevent Fireworks/Fire Crackers Injuries this coming NEW YEAR.
Do keep a bucket of water, hose or fire extinguisher nearby when lighting fireworks.
Don’t pick up fireworks that fail to go off or try to relight them.
Don’t light fireworks, including sparklers, near anything flammable, such as dry leaves or grass, gasoline, etc.
Don’t light more than one firework at a time.
Do move away quickly after lighting fireworks.
Don’t point fireworks towards any person.
Don’t light fireworks in a container or indoors.
Don’t let young children play with any type of fireworks, including sparklers.
Do require adult supervision when older children use fireworks.
Don’t use fireworks while using alcohol or drugs.
The most Important thing is being PREPARED and always READY
Keep water or a fire extinguisher nearby and ready. If something goes wrong, you’ll want a hose or bucket of water close by to extinguish the blaze.
For something more portable and robust than a water bucket, consider keeping a fire extinguisher near your fireworks area.
Keep a fire extinguisher handy: Anytime there will open flames around your party, you should keep a fire extinguisher handy. First you need to keep the area clear of items that could quickly flame up if a spark flies. Keep a fire extinguisher close to each area that may be at risk for the flame spreading to table linens, centerpieces, presents, etc. Whether it’s a large candle centerpiece, a charcoal grill on your patio, or a buffet table with an open flame for heating or cooking food, any of these pose a potential fire hazard. Ensure that your home, apartment or place where you host . Christmas or New Year party has fire escape plan.
WISHING EVERYONE TO HAVE A SAFE, BLESSED & A HAPPY NEW YEAR AHEAD!
