I give this advice every summer but we still have problems with fireworks. Children and adults suffer serious injuries.
In experienced hands, fireworks can be safe and a source of great excitement. This Independence Day remember that an experienced adult needs to be in charge of the fireworks.
Fireworks are much easier to get than they used to be. If you are not experienced or have not been taught how to safely use them…stay away.
The fact that fireworks are much more plentiful and easier to obtain increases the opportunity for injury.
Fireworks in the right hands can be fun and a true source of celebration but you want to avoid needless injury.
