Fireworks certainly have a stigma attached to them: they are thought of, like motorcycles and skydiving, as one of the many examples of natural selection and Darwinism. But with a few simple saftey protocols your Fourth of July can be without hazard. Here are some easy ways to keep your Independence Day safe:
1. Saftey Glasses
Anyone in close proximity to fireworks should always protect their eyes with saftey glasses or goggles.
2. Keep a Bucket of Water Handy
Fireworks can be ignited by a high amount of heat, so having a bucket of water handy is a good idea in case your whole arsenal begins firing.
3. Punk Sticks
Punk sticks are the safest way to light fireworks. They ensure that the user can maintain some distance between themself and the explosive, and they also stay lit for a long period of time.
4. Stay Back if You're Just Watching
Anyone not in the process of lighting fireworks should stay at least 50 feet away — that way they can also have the best view while also staying out of harm's way.
