If you or a loved one will be lighting fireworks this week, it is important that you celebrate safely and responsibly. Fireworks can be considered dangerous when in the hands of someone who does not know how to handle them.
Fireworks are not toys, so never let small children handle them. Keep fireworks away from houses, buildings and dry grass. Krazy Ken’s Fireworks store owner Lamar Sims has some key rules to remember while preparing fireworks.
Never have any portion of your body directly over a firework while lighting and only light one firework at a time. You should also be aware that fireworks are banned in some in cities.
