Important Safety information
Ka-Boomers Fireworks wants you to have a great 4th of July celebration. We also want you to do it in a safe and responsible manner. In order to fully appreciate fireworks, we recommend that you read and obey the following safety guidelines for handling fireworks.
OBEY THE LAWS IN YOUR AREA
Follow your local and state laws regarding the possession and use of fireworks. Read all directions, cautions, labels, and warnings on each individual firework item to understand the product performance and hazards associated with the use of the item. Use only those fireworks permitted under the laws of the state and local jurisdiction in which you are using the fireworks.
PURCHASE FIREWORKS FROM RELIABLE SOURCES.
Buy fireworks only from reliable, licensed fireworks dealers. Licensed and reliable dealers will only carry those products that meet standards set and enforced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Do not purchase or shoot off illegal fireworks.
ONLY ADULTS SHOULD HANDLE FIREWORKS.
It is important that when teaching children the safety use of fireworks, an adult is always there to supervise and give instruction. Never let children play with or light any fireworks.
NEVER USE THE FIREWORKS AS WEAPONS.
It is important that fireworks are never pointed at or thrown toward any person or object. Do not consume any alcohol while lighting or handling any fireworks. If you are impaired in any way when you use fireworks, you increase the possibilities of misuse and injury to yourself and others. Never experiment with homemade fireworks. Never attempt to re light or fix any “dud” firework item. If a firework item fails to ignite, let it stand for at least five minutes, then immerse it in water. Dispose of the item properly.
USE FIREWORKS ON A HARD SURFACE IN CLEAR OPEN AREA.
Always light fireworks on a hard, flat, and level surface to insure the stability of the items. Keep those that are watching fireworks show a safe distance away from the shooting site. Always light your fireworks in a clear open area away from buildings, vehicles, and shrubbery. A minimum clear radius of 30 feet for fountains and other ground based items and 100 yards for any aerial product is recommended. Always avoid lighting the fireworks in any area where there is dry grass or brush that could catch fire or near any flammable items. Never shoot fireworks in metal or glass containers.
Be cautious of lighting any fireworks during strong wind conditions. The fireworks should be lit with the wind blowing away from the spectators. Never use fireworks indoors or near any flammable substance. Always shoot outdoors and away from buildings, vehicles, and shrubbery.
ALWAYS HAVE WATER OR A FIRE EXTINGUISHER NEARBY.
Have an accessible fire extinguisher, water supply, hose, or bucket of water nearby for emergencies. You may also want to have a first aid kit near the shoot site.
LIGHT FIREWORKS ONE AT A TIME.
Light only one firework item at a time. Never put your head or any part of your body over the top of any fireworks product. Never look into a tube to check on the firework item. Never hold a lighted firework item in your hand. Keep as far from the firework item as possible when lighting. Safety glasses are recommended for those individuals lighting the fireworks and those individuals in close proximity to the fireworks.
BE CAREFUL HANDLING FIREWORKS.
Do not carry fireworks in your pocket or on your person. Never smoke when handling fireworks. Always light fireworks with a safety punk, flare, or an extended butane lighting device. Light the firework and get away. The noise and light of fireworks can frighten some animals. You may want to consider moving the animals away or keeping them inside during your display.
