FIREWORKS SAFETY TIPS: - Obey all local laws regarding the use of fireworks. - Read warning labels and performance descriptions before igniting. - A responsible adult SHOULD supervise all firework activities. - Alcohol and fireworks DO NOT mix. - Use fireworks OUTDOORS in a clear area; away from buildings and vehicles. - Never try to relight a “dud” firework. Wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water. - Have a bucket of water and charged water hose nearby. - Dispose of spent fireworks by wetting them down and placing them in a metal trash can away from any building or combustible materials until the next day. - Report illegal explosives, like M-80s and quarter sticks, to the fire or police department. GRILLING SAFETY TIPS: - Always grill outdoors in a well-ventilated area. - Do not leave grills running unsupervised. - Gas Grills – Make sure your gas grill is shut off with the cylinder valve closed after use. Always use or store gas cylinders in an upright, vertical position and check for leaks. - Charcoal Grills – Treat all ashes and coals as hot even after they have been cooling. Once cooled, dispose of ashes in a metal container, wet them down, and keep away from other combustibles.
