Fourth of July is a fun holiday for gathering with friends and family, but it also brings the possibility of serious danger. Fireworks and bonfires add to the festivities, and when these things are involved, a level of safety has to be considered.

  • Watch for grass fires. Many families will light lots of smaller fireworks in the yard which is lots of entertainment for the whole family. Remember to pay close attention to the fire when lighting. It can cause small fires in your grass, so be prepared by having a bucket of water nearby, hose or fire extinguisher.
  • Protect your concrete. Kids love snakes, smoke bombs, and other ground fireworks. Many of these fireworks leave a permanent black mark on your concrete. Don’t ruin your walkway this holiday, plan ahead and have a non-flammable item to lay your fireworks on before lighting.
  • Clean your gutter prior to setting off fireworks. Gutters accumulate leaves and debris which can be flammable if a hot firework lands on it. Keep your gutter cleaned this holiday so, if a firework lands on your roof, you have a better chance of keeping your home safe.
  • Watch where you set off your fireworks. Keep an eye out for limbs, trees, bushes and other vegetation that could catch fire if a firework gets caught. Fireworks are very hot and if they end up high in a tree, it could start a fire unintentionally. You can also spray down your bushes with water to be extra safe.
  • Let your fireworks cool off before throwing them away. It will take a while for your fireworks to completely cool off. Don’t immediately throw them in your trashcan.
  • Grill/Bonfire. Put grill somewhere out of the way so that children and pets will not be near it. If you have bonfire at some point during the party the party, build the fire away from the house or low hanging trees to avoid spreading the fire and once again, make sure the children understand not to get too close.
