The Kansas Fire Marshal reminds people to follow important safety tips while enjoying the 4th of July fireworks.
Hands are the most frequently and severely injured part of the body from fireworks use. Be sure to use a long handled lighter like this one.
Discuss your safety plans when shopping for and setting off fireworks. You can follow this chart from the Kansas State Fire Marshal. Remember to clean up the area once everything is cool.
