Fireworks Safety

Safe Kids Connecticut recommends that families enjoy their fireworks at community-sanctioned fireworks displays. Otherwise, Safe Kids recommends these guidelines:

  • Only adults should handle fireworks. Tell children that they should leave the area immediately if their friends are using reworks

  • Discuss safety procedures with your children. Make sure they know how to call 9-1-1.

  • Show them how to put out fireworks by using water or a re extinguisher

  • Read labels and carefully follow directions. All fireworks must carry a warning label describing necessary safety precautions

  • Never use fireworks indoors

  • Be sure spectators are out of range before lighting firework

  • Never aim or throw fireworks at another person

  • Never place your face or any other body part over fireworks.

  • Never try to re-ignite fireworks that malfunction

  • Never carry fireworks in your pocket
