Fireworks can be an awe-inspiring experience that takes your breath away. Whether you’re watching a professional fireworks show at a theme park or watching your neighbor’s small exhibit, safety comes first. Although beautiful and exciting to look at, fireworks can be hazardous if not done correctly or done safely. For this reason, it’s essential to know the basic safety tips when buying and using wholesale fireworks.
Close Isn’t Cool
This is an obvious safety tip, but it’s one that many people tend to forget. Getting too close for comfort can put you in danger of having the sparks land on your skin or clothing, which can lead to severe burns. Watching those wholesale fireworks burn and spark up may seem even more amazing up close, but your safety and the safety of others is more important.
We also want to emphasize that in this new social media world we live in, getting close to fireworks for the perfect picture may seem cool, but if it puts you or others in danger, it’s not worth it. It is necessary that you and everyone else back up to a safe distance right after lighting a firework.
Adult Supervision is Key
This also goes without saying, but children should never be left alone with fireworks (or any other fire hazard for that matter). Adult supervision should always accompany activities involving fireworks, and adults should always be the ones to light the fireworks, never children.
Sparklers can especially be a danger to kids, as they can hold it in their hands and become fascinated with it to the point where they think touching the sparklers or playing with them is OK. Regardless, every activity that uses wholesale fireworks should have adult supervision to make sure everything is safe and sound.
Treat Others How You Want to Be Treated
If you don’t want fireworks to hurt you, don’t joke around by hurting other people with fireworks. Make sure you treat others with respect and care by never pointing or throwing fireworks at them. Not only is it not right to put others in such dangerous situations, but also directing fireworks towards people while they are unaware can result in significant wounds and burns. As a general rule, keep in mind that if you wouldn’t do it to yourself, don’t do it to someone else.
Store them Correctly
Most people are not familiar with this critical step, but make sure to keep your wholesale fireworks in the right places. If you are in a hurry, make sure to still refrain your hardest from carrying them in your pocket as this can be extremely dangerous if the fireworks were to ignite in your pockets.
Glass or metal containers are also a no-go as these materials won’t bode well with these extremely flammable items. Make sure to store your wholesale fireworks in a cool, dry place so that they stay safe, secure, and free from damage or ignition.
After finally using your wholesale fireworks, many people’s first instinct is to try to light the fireworks more so that it can continue to spark or to pick it up and throw it away. While you should do your due diligence by cleaning up after using your fireworks, and while it may seem like a good idea to re-light your fireworks, stay away from doing either of these things. Often a firework may have tiny sparks running through it waiting to set off the rest of it, so you need to give it adequate time to run its course.
