Health Tip: Safer Use of Fireworks

(HealthDay News) -- Summer holidays sometimes include fireworks, a potentially dangerous way to celebrate.

The National Safety Council suggests these precautions while using fireworks:

  • Make handling fireworks off-limits for children.
  • Set off fireworks only in an area that is clear of people and animals, away from homes and other buildings, and away from anything flammable.
  • Keep your distance after lighting a firework, and only light one firework at a time. Never light a firework inside any container.
  • If a firework doesn't ignite, don't try again. Instead, douse with water and discard. Be sure to keep a bucket of water near.
