When using fireworks, it is extremely important that certain lighting procedures are taken to protect you and those around you. These tips will help you light your fireworks with extreme care and safety.


    • Never shoot fireworks in metal or glass containers.
    • The shooter should wear eye protection and never have any part of the body over the firework.
    • Never attempt to relight, alter, or fix any “dud” firework item. If a firework fails to ignite, let it stand for at least five minutes, then immerse it in water. Dispose of the item properly.
    • Never throw fireworks at another person.
