The Dangers of Fireworks

Fireworks are often used to mark special events and holidays. It is important to know that fireworks are not safe in the hands of consumers. Despite the dangers of fireworks, few people understand the associated risks – devastating burns, other injuries, fires, and even death.

A few ideas to get into the patriotic spirit, without fireworks

  1. Use glow sticks, they glow in the dark and are a safe alternative to a sparkler. Fun for all ages.
  2. Loud and proud. Noisemakers are sure to make a statement. They can be found at local party supply stores or make your own.
  3. Outdoor movie night. Set up a screen and projector. Don’t forget the bug spray!
  4. Red, white, and blue silly string…fun for all ages.
  5. Make a patriotic craft with the family.
  6. Throw a birthday party for the USA, and don’t forget the cake.
