observer, here at IonLoop, we want you to stay safe!

Strategies to Stay Safe Around
1)Never allow young children to handle fireworks.
This tip can apply to many things, but fireworks especially. Leave it to the
adults and, better yet, the professionals. According to the National Safety Council, even smaller grade “fireworks” like sparklers can cause serious burns.
Keep an eye on those kiddos to ensure they are looking and not touching.
2)Keep some water handy. Just like water is good
for the body, it is also great for some heated situations. If a firework
extravaganza begins to go awry it is always best to have a bucket of water or a
hose nearby. Being prepared can make all the difference and save you from a
scorched lawn… or worse.
3)Protect those eyes! If you are the lucky adult
that is going to be manning the fireworks at this year’s show, grab some
goggles to shield your eyes from encountering harmful smoke and sparks.
4)Stay away from duds. If you attempt to light a
firework and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, do not try again! A
malfunctioning firework should be left alone and treated with care.
5)Disposal tactic. After the show is over, soak
all of the fireworks in water for a few hours before discarding them. According
to the National Safety Council, fireworks burn at about 2000°F! Take the time to cool them down before
attempting to store the debris in your garbage bins.
Whatever the occasion, it’s a good idea to review your firework safety
checklist before attending or hosting a firework display. Looking for more ways
