Know where you can legally shoot fireworks. All local cities ban shooting fireworks within their boundaries.

- 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.
