Fourth of July Safety Tips

7/21/2017 (Permalink)

Fourth of July is arguably the best part of summer. An entire day off work filled with barbecues, fireworks, and a trip to the local park or beach? What more could we possibly ask for. Having fun is great but it’s also important to remember to stay safe.

Have a great day celebrating our beautiful country but remember these useful Firework and Grilling safety tips:


  • Always follow the instructions on the packaging.
  • Never give fireworks to small children.
  • Keep a bucket of water or a hose nearby.
  • Light only one firework at a time and never attempt to relight "a dud."
  • Never carry fireworks in your pockets.
  • Store fireworks in a cool, dry place away from children and pets.
  • Never throw or point a firework toward people, animals, vehicles, or structures.
  • Use fireworks outdoors only.
  • Keep a safe distance.


  • Always watch over a barbecue grill when in use.
  • Never grill in any enclosed area like in your house, camper or tent.
  • Make sure everyone, including the pets, don’t get too close to the grill.
  • Keep the grill out in the open and away from anything that could catch fire.
  • Use the long-handled tools made for cooking to avoid burns.
  • Never add charcoal starter fluid when coals have already been ignited.

The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to attend a public fireworks show put on by professionals. This way you can relax and not worry about getting hurt or lighting things on fire. Fireworks should always be treated with a lot of care and caution. Every year people in this country are accidentally injured while using fireworks and grills. Follow precautions to make sure you and your family stay out of the ER this summer. SERVPRO of Alhambra wishes you a Happy Fourth of July filled with delicious foods and loved ones!
