safety tips for July 4th with Firefighter Tim

Fireworks are a big part of the July 4th celebrations. They light up the sky with bright colors and bring joy to many people.

Watching fireworks can be a lot of fun, but it’s important to remember that they can also be dangerous, especially for kids.

Firefighter Tim joined us and demonstrated how dangerous fireworks can be if you’re not careful! Be sure to watch the full interview above!


Here are some tips to stay safe while enjoying fireworks:

  1. Watch from a Distance: It’s best to watch fireworks from a safe distance. Find a good spot where you can see the fireworks clearly but aren’t too close.
  2. Adult Supervision: Always have an adult supervise when fireworks are being used. Kids should never be allowed to light fireworks.
  3. Use Legal Fireworks: Only use fireworks that are legal in your area. Illegal fireworks can be more dangerous and are not worth the risk.
  4. Keep Water Nearby: Have a bucket of water or a hose ready in case of a fire. This can help you quickly put out any small fires.
  5. Protect Your Eyes: Wear safety glasses if you are lighting fireworks. This can help protect your eyes from sparks and debris.

By following these tips, you can enjoy the excitement of fireworks while keeping everyone safe. Have a happy and safe July 4th!
