July 4th is one of the few days where fireworks are OK to play. And can be the funnest time for the kids. And the adults who are kids in adult bodies. So if you’re having a July 4th party with some fireworks fun, make sure you play it safe. Use these Shop RTO safety tips for the upcoming July 4th festivities.
Have a talk before the fireworks fun begins. Look the kids in their eyes and lay out the safety tips so they know and will be ready to respond if necessary.
Be ready to put out a fire. July 4th has the highest percentages of fires for the obvious reasons so keep a fire extinguisher available, the water hose nearby and some buckets of water at hand.
Make sure when the fireworks are done to extinguish them thoroughly before throwing them away.
Be prepared for the potential of skin burns. Have some cool, not cold, water at hand and some aloe vera lotion or gel handy. And, if the worst happens, and your clothes light on fire. Do not run. Stop, drop and roll.
Many July 4th parties have adult beverages so make sure they’re away from the kids and they understand they are for adults.
Use the fireworks away from the decorations, paper plates and all other combustible items. Make sure the area is free of leaves, branches, bushes and anything that can set off a fire. Rope off a safe area clear of all of these elements so everyone knows where the potential danger zone is.
Make sure to wear some type of glasses. And may want to consider a long sleeve shirt and gloves just as long as they don’t make you more clumsy with the fireworks.
These are necessary precautions that everyone needs to make sure before having some, good ‘ole fashioned fireworks fun on America’s birthday.
