How to Shoot Firecrackers .
Firecrackers do not put on a beautiful fireworks show, as fountain fireworks do, but they are fun for older kids and adults to shoot off, and you can buy a lot of them at a reasonable price. The following will show you how to safely shoot firecrackers .
Place firecrackers on a hard flat surface away from people, pets and anything flammable.
Light an incense stick or lighter stick, sometimes called a "puck lighter," with a regular household lighter or match until the tip of the incense stick turns red. The lighter stick will give you about 20 minutes of use.
Touch the lighter stick to the fuse or fuses of the firecrackers until the fuse is lit.
Back up and stand at a safe distance.
Follow the safety advice to protect yourself and the people watching:
●Make sure an adult is to be with you at all times.
●Don’t allow little kids to play with fireworks.
●Always use fireworks outside with water nearby. Keep fireworks away from dry leaves and other things that can easily catch fire.
●Light one firework at a time. Keep the firework you’re lighting well away from unlit fireworks.●Point fireworks away from people. If you’re lighting a firework, wear eye protection and put the firework pointing up.
●If a firework doesn’t seem to work, don’t try to light it again. Stand back for a while and throw water over it.
●Put all fireworks into the water before throwing them away.
●Keep fireworks in a cool, dry place.
●If someone is hurt in the eye by fireworks, don’t rub the eye. Call 999 or go to the nearest hospital.
