Fourth of July Weekend
Tips for a Grand 4th of July Celebration
1. Obey local laws. If fireworks are not legal where you live, do not use them.
2.Never try to make your own fireworks.
3. Always use fireworks outside and have a bucket of water and a hose nearby in case of accidents.
5. If you have children, it’s safest to go see a public fireworks display.
6.Soak all fireworks in a bucket of water before throwing them in the trash can.

8. Watch out for cops on the roads, don't drive under the influence.
9. Wear suntan lotion
10. Salute the American flag
