If you choose to stay home to celebrate the Fourth of July with your family and friends, it is a good idea to review general firework safety tips. Using fireworks is a tradition for many people to celebrate Independence Day. However, thousands of people are injured each year when using fireworks.
Some general firework safety tips include:
- Never allow children to use fireworks unsupervised.

- Follow instructions carefully for storage of unused fireworks.
