Love the hot weather, barbecuing with friends and the smell of summer!!!  Keeping things safe while you celebrate the holiday is a must!!!  Here are some tips and a video from the The National Council on Fireworks Safety.

Since sparklers are a popular choice of fireworks, here's safety tips for those:

• Always remain standing while using sparklers.

• Never hold a child in your arms while using sparklers.

• Never hold, or light, more than one sparkler at a time.

• Never throw sparklers.

• Sparkler wire and stick remain hot long after the flame has gone out. Be sure to drop

spent sparklers in a bucket of water.

• Teach children not to wave sparklers, or run, while holding sparklers.
