Here at SecurityCamExpert.com, we care about you and your safety. With the 4th of July holiday upon us, it is important to remember that fireworks are fun, but they can also be very dangerous. In fact, on the holiday, two out of five fires reported are started by fireworks (via National Fire Protection Association).
Before you start your Independence Day celebrations, please review these fireworks safety tips.
- Sparklers burn at 1200°F. Who doesn’t love sparklers? While they seem like innocent fun for kids and adults, improper handling can result in avoidable injuries.
- Leave the fireworks to the professionals. Consumer fireworks pose a threat to your safety as well as the safety of others around you. Not to mention that fireworks are illegal in most cities.
- Safest way to enjoy fireworks is to attend a public display conducted by trained professionals. Why not sit back, relax, and enjoy a beautiful fireworks display with your loved ones? There is no shortage of fireworks displays, especially for the holiday.
- Never pick up fireworks after a display – may still be active. Children are especially curious, so be vigilant of your kids and aware of the surroundings to avoid any potential accidents.

We hope you enjoy a fun and safe holiday weekend. Happy 4th of July from your friends at SecurityCamExpert.com!
