Recognize National Fireworks Safety Month by Practicing Sparkler Safety

By Alpert Schreyer on June 6, 2012

Sparklers are one of the most popular types of fireworks in the U.S., according to the National Safety Council. These hand-held fireworks are popular cake decorations and are especially loved by children. However, sparklers can cause serious injuries, including severe burns and eye injuries. During Fireworks Safety Month, June 1 to July 4, protect your family from harm by following these accident prevention tips from the National Council on Fireworks Safety:

  • Always read and follow instructions. Follow state and local laws for legal fireworks use, and always employ plenty of common sense.
  • Only use sparklers outdoors, away from structures, vehicles, and other objects. Stand more than an arm’s length away from others with a lit sparkler. Keep them away from clothing. Children should not wear loose clothing or have loose, long hair while using a sparkler.
  • Have a bucket of water handy for putting used sparkler sticks in, and to use to put out a fire in case a sparkler accidentally ignites something.
  • Children under 12 should not use sparklers, and children 12 and older should only be allowed to handle sparklers if they are careful not to wave them around or run with them. Sparklers may reach temperatures of over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, which can cause severe burns.

No fireworks are completely safe, but when used wisely, many can be enjoyed without harming anyone.
