When Using Sparklers/Firework, Please be Responsible

 Everyone looks forward to the ring of the midnight bells with all of the new year's kisses and the firing of fireworks. There is so much excitement in the air as many people live in the moment. We are here to remind you of all of the things you need to remember when shooting off fireworks. 

  • Be Cautious About Smoke From Firework

When you are shooting off fireworks, you should monitor the wind's direction and use that to find the perfect location to shoot off the fire. This is important because you will see an upwind spot where your guests can sit. This is not beneficial as the smoke from the fireworks can create unsafe conditions for people with breathing conditions. This is caused by the fine particles and gases left behind, which are hard on the lungs.

  • Have Someone Supervise the Firework Setup

Having your firework show is a responsibility that one shouldn't take lightly. This is important because you are running the risk of having an accident occur when left unsupervised. By assigning the supervisor's task, you can ensure that someone is available if anything happens, whether fire-related or situational-related. This person can monitor the area to ensure that small children stay away from the launchpad. 

  • Storing Unused Fireworks is VERY Important

You might want to save some fireworks for another time, which is understandable. It would help if you were cautious about finding an area that can hold these contents safely. For example, you should see a place safe from direct fire. If a fire breaks out and reaches the fireworks, it could create a more significant problem faster. Finding the perfect location can ensure that your home is safe all year around.

From your team at SERVPRO, we want to wish you a Happy New Year!
