Fireworks Safety Tips for Miami-Dade County Residents?

6/27/2022 (Permalink)

Fireworks light up the evening sky over Miami, Florida. We respond to fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Miami.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), more than 10,000 fireworks-related injuries are treated in emergency rooms across the United States each year. Children under the age of 15 account for nearly 42 percent of those injured. Our team in Miami Beach wants everyone to enjoy fireworks safely and offer some tips from the Miami-Dade County website:

  • The safest way to enjoy fireworks is at a public fireworks display that trained professionals put on
  • If you are set on doing your own fireworks, make sure a responsible adult is present at all times and in charge of lighting all sparklers and fireworks
  • Never use illegal fireworks. Anything that propels itself through the air, detonates or explodes, or contains more than 100 grams of the chemical compound that produces sparks, is illegal. If you are unsure, make sure you purchase your fireworks from a vendor with an official permit to sell fireworks.
  • Read and follow all instructions on the label and keep all spectators a safe distance back from the ignition spot
  • Use fireworks outdoors only, away from houses, vehicles, trees, and other flammable objects. Choose a smooth, hard surface, clear of dry grass, and brush to light all fireworks and sparklers. 
  • Never attempt to re-ignite "duds" or fireworks that didn't work the first time
  • Keep a hose or water bucket nearby at all times
