Sparkler Safety

Posted by:

There is an average of 230 firework-related injuries near and on the 4th of July, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.  Some firework incidents can turn to be deadly.  Majority of the injuries are to the hands, fingers, head, face, eyes and ears.

Depending on the kind of sparkler, a sparkler can burn anywhere from 1800°F to 3000°F!

If you are going to be handling fireworks, please be safe and remember this; don’t relight fireworks that didn’t fully ignite, keep a bucket of water on hand, light fireworks one at a time and move back as soon as the firework lights up.
