10 Fireworks Safety Tips

10 Fireworks Safety TipsWhile you are enjoying your grilling, family time, and fireworks, take time to remind your kids what this holiday is about.  The lighting and display of fireworks came with a price to many men and women sacrificing for their kids and future generations.Use the fireworks display as a teaching tool; share with them the lyrics of the star spangled banner and, most of all, remain safe if your family tradition includes lighting fireworks.  Below are 10 fireworks safety tips you should use and teach to your kids.

1. Use fireworks outdoors only.

2. Never allow young children to play with or ignite fireworks.

3. Never try making your own, and avoid buying fireworks packages in brown paper (this means they are for professional displays).

4. Always have a bucket of water and a hose nearby.

5. Avoid carrying fireworks in your pocket (the friction could set them off).

6. Don't allow kids to pick up pieces of fireworks after an event (they may still be ignited and can explode).

7. Soak all fireworks in a bucket of water before throwing them away.

8. Never shoot fireworks off in metal or glass containers, and never toward another person or home. 9. Never re-light a "dud".  Wait 20 minutes and soak in water.

10. Don't mix alcohol and fireworks.  Have a "designated shooter."

Huddle up with your kids and ask:  What freedom are you most thankful for in our country?

    I have followed these top 10 as a father with my 4 children (2boys & 2girls). Things worked out just fine, they now have blessed me with 5 grandchildren. Today I'm repeating the 10 with a grandson who lives with me. His single parent mother and I try to follow all the rules without father he so needs to learn from! We take him to yearly All Pro Dad events and just love the whole day together!!!
