No matter how many times you see fireworks, they never stop to inspire awe and wonder as they light up the sky.
Whether you’re setting off fireworks for a small group of friends and family, or a larger crowd, following proper safety procedures will make sure you remember the occasion for all the right reasons!
You don’t just need to think about safety during the display but you also need to have a plan in place for afterwards. Remember that fireworks are essentially explosives – although they are controlled ones – and they need to be treated as such. Despite the beauty they can create, they are made from a potentially deadly mixture of chemicals!
If you have fireworks you didn’t use, then you need to take them back to the shop you bought them from, or consult the manufacturer. Don’t be tempted to store them at home for another day!
