The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to attend an outdoor public display put on by professionals. Pyrotechnic devices (better known as fireworks) are designed to burn and explode, and are a leading cause of injuries in the U.S. Every year, fireworks used by amateurs cause thousands of injuries serious enough to require emergency room treatment.
Children between the ages of 10 and 14 are at greatest risk of injury from fireworks. In 2011, more than 11,000 people suffered severe fireworks injuries in the United States, including burns, lacerations, amputations, and blindness.
The Waterford Fire Department recommends that all fireworks -- including devices considered legal be used only by trained professional pyrotechnicians. Even sparklers, often mistaken as safe, burn as hot as 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. Leave any area where amateurs (adults included) are using these devices, and do not pick up or touch found fireworks.Have a safe and fun summer!
