The Safest Spectacle of the Year: Tips for Firework Celebrations
Don’t let the bright lights in the sky be more than you bargain for this New Year’s Eve. Firework accidents happen more often than anyone would imagine and sometimes end with catastrophic damage. Bodily injuries and damage to your home are just two possible outcomes when firework fun time goes horribly wrong. Learn from others’ accidents this holiday season when lighting up your explosives.
Preventive Measures, Think Safety First
Other people’s mistakes should be taken into account when learning what to do and avoid. Here’s how you can prevent any possible bodily accidents or property damage:
- Make sure to be in compliance with city and county ordinances before purchasing fireworks
- Always thoroughly read all firework labels
- Never modify firework instructions
- Always keep a fire extinguisher and/or water hose nearby
- Never point fireworks at yourself or the people around you
- Do not let young children handle fireworks without strict adult supervision
- In the event of a dud, do not try to relight the firework. Properly discard it by allowing it ample time to cool, wet it down with a hose and throw it away in a trashcan with a lid
Start the New Year Safely
Now that you’ve taken the time to be on the safe path to an exciting night of firework displays, the only last step is to make sure your home is properly insured year-round for accidents and any other possible damage.
Always avoid waiting until it’s too late. Being insured is the ultimate responsibility for any homeowner as is prevention.
