Fireworks Safety

MCFD challenges residents to make a New Year’s resolution to educate themselves on the safe and responsible use of consumer fireworks and shares the following Safety Tips:

  • Only use fireworks outdoors free of overhead obstructions and away from dry grass or other flammable materials.
  • Never give fireworks to young children.
  • Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks.
  • Always have a bucket of water, and charged water hose, nearby.
  • Dispose of spent product by wetting it down and place it in a metal trash can away from any building or combustible materials until morning.
  • And remember, ALCOHOL AND FIREWORKS DON’T MIX!
