  • Never throw or point a firework toward people, animals, vehicles, or structures. 
  • Always supervise a grill when in use. Keep the grill away from the house, deck, tree branches, or anything flammable. 
  • Provide close and constant attention to children you are supervising in or near water. 
  • Only light one firework at a time and never attempt to relight "a dud."
