Fireworks Safety

If you’re not heading downtown for the big 4th of July Southwest Freedom Over Texas concert and fireworks, maybe you are lighting some fireworks of your own.  Fireworks are illegal within the city limits of Houston and in some parts of Harris County.  There is currently a burn ban in effect for Montgomery County.  Check your local Fire Marshal’s website to find out what is allowed in your area.   

On average, 200 people end up in the emergency room every day with fireworks-related injuries during the month of July.  Here are some important safety tips to keep in mind if you are planning your own fireworks display:

Before you shoot:  

  • DO NOT LET YOUR CHILDREN BUY FIREWORKS WITHOUT ADULT SUPERVISION 
  • Only buy from reliable fireworks sellers

  • Never experiment or attempt to make your own fireworks

  • Store fireworks in a cool, dry place
  • Find a smooth, flat surface -- away from the house and other buildings, or dry leaves and grass 
  • Be sure to have water handy in case of a malfunction or fire

  • ALWAYS HAVE ADULT SUPERVISION!
When you're ready to shoot:
  • NEVER ALLOW CHILDREN TO PLAY WITH OR IGNITE FIREWORKS 
  • Always read and follow label directions, warnings, and instructions

  • Be considerate of your neighbors

  • Only ignite fireworks outdoors, and away from houses and other buildings 
  • Be sure other people are out of range before lighting fireworks
  • Light only one firework at a time

  • Never try to re-Iight fireworks that have not fully functioned

  • Never give fireworks to small children, even sparklers can cause serious burns 
  • Never throw fireworks at another person, vehicle, or animal

  • Never carry fireworks in your pocket

  • Never shoot fireworks in metal or glass containers
  • 
Dispose of spent fireworks properly
  • Appoint a ‘designated shooter’ – fireworks and alcohol are a dangerous combination
