MOST FIREWORKS-RELATED BURNS COME FROM SPARKLERS…WHICH CAN BURN UP TO 12-HUNDRED DEGREES. CLOSELY SUPERVISE CHILDREN AROUND FIREWORKS AT ALL TIMES. IF YOU ARE USING FIREWORKS AT HOME…DON’T WAEAR LOOSE CLOTHING. KEEP FIREWORKS AWAY FROM DRY GRASS. POINT FIREWORKS AWAY FROM HOMES AND KEEP AWAY FROM BRUSH OR OTHER FLAMABLE SUBSTANCES. STAND SEVERAL FEET AWAY FROM LIT FIREWORKS. IF ONE DOESN’T GO OFF…DO NOT STAND OVER IT TO INVESTIGATE. JUST PUT IT OUT. AND ALWAYS HAVE WATER READILY AVAILABLE.
