Handing Fireworks

Fireworks are a major part of the Fourth of July’s festivities, but they also can cause a lot of accidents if not handled properly. Always read the directions carefully; never set off fireworks without adult supervision; light one at a time; and stand at least 25 feet away from them before setting them off.
