How to Safely Light Fireworks
The Consumer Products Safety Commission gives these fireworks safety guidelines for home use:1
Never allow children to play with or ignite fireworks.
Make sure fireworks are legal in your area before buying them.
Keep a bucket of water garden hose near in case of a fire or malfunction.
Light fireworks one at a time, then move back fast.
Never attempt to re-light or pick up fireworks that have not fully ignited.
Never use fireworks while on alcohol or drugs.
Never point fireworks at another person.
Never carry fireworks on your person or shoot them off in metal or glass containers.
After fireworks are entirely out, pour water over them before discarding them.
Never smoke around fireworks!
Do not light fireworks on windy days.
Wear cotton clothing to light fireworks. Synthetic fibers tend to melt onto the skin, while cotton does not burn easily. If your clothes catch fire: stop, drop and roll.
Use a long-tipped lighter for lighting fireworks to keep hands and faces away from fuses.
