Fireworks Safety

July 2017

Safety tips to make your Canada Day safe and enjoyable:

  • Make sure you are always around a parent or guardian when using sparklers.
  • Never light a sparkler yourself. Leave this task to the adults.
  • Hold the end of the sparkler out in front of you to avoid getting burned.
  • Never light sparklers indoors or near dry grass. They can easily start a fire.
  • Once finished with your sparklers, give them to an adult to dispose of properly.
  • When an adult is lighting a firework, stand far enough away to give them room and to not get hurt.

Have fun and be safe.
