Health Tip: Safer Use of Fireworks

Take precautions when children are near
(HealthDay News) -- Summer holidays sometimes include fireworks, a potentially dangerous way to celebrate.
The National Safety Council suggests these precautions while using fireworks:
Make handling fireworks off-limits for children. Set off fireworks only in an area that is clear of people and animals, away from homes and other buildings, and away from anything flammable. Keep your distance after lighting a firework, and only light one firework at a time. Never light a firework inside any container. If a firework doesn't ignite, don't try again. Instead, douse with water and discard. Be sure to keep a bucket of water near.
