Firework Safety this 4th of July

SERVPRO of Lake Conroe, Magnolia, and Cleveland urges you to please be safe with fireworks this summer.

Follow these safety tips when using fireworks:

Never allow young children to play with or ignite fireworks.


Avoid buying fireworks that are packaged in brown paper because this is often a sign that the fireworks were made for professional displays and that they could pose a danger to consumers.


Always have an adult supervise fireworks activities. Parents don't realize that young children suffer injuries from sparklers. Sparklers burn at temperatures of about 2,000 degrees - hot enough to melt some metals.


Never place any part of your body directly over a fireworks device when lighting the fuse. Back up to a safe distance immediately after lighting fireworks.


Never try to re-light or pick up fireworks that have not ignited fully.
Never point or throw fireworks at another person.


Keep a bucket of water or a garden hose handy in case of fire or other mishap.


Light fireworks one at a time, then move back quickly.


Never carry fireworks in a pocket or shoot them off in metal or glass containers.


After fireworks complete their burning, douse the spent device with plenty of water from a bucket or hose before discarding it to prevent a trash fire.


Make sure fireworks are legal in the Houston area before buying or using them.
