Summertime and Fireworks go hand and hand.
There is always a joke about buying Fireworks that comes out in the summer.
It goes something like this," always buy from the guy missing a few fingers; you know he always has the good ones!"
Kind of funny but not so much if it happens to you.
Every 4th of July people get hurt with fireworks. Some lose a finger, some lose their home to fire and some even worse.
It's not hard to believe that some people call the 4th of July the deadliest of holidays.
If your going to enjoy setting off fireworks this year at anytime follow the instructions on the firework as well as these few more tips:
Have a bucket of water near by
Light one at a time
Don't try to re-light a "dud" firework. Give it some time and then soak it in water
Wear safety glasses
Don't let children handle fireworks
Always be a safe distance from any buildings or cars
Dispose of spent fireworks by wetting and then tossing in a metal trash can
The last thing I can say is don't forget to pack your common sense this summer and anytime you light off fireworks check your surrounds and look for things that could go wrong.
You don't want to be like the guy in joke!
