Most people in an apartment in Leesburg, VA probably go watch professional fireworks displays, but whether you have your own fireworks, or are shooting them off with friends, it’s important to be safe. Here are some fireworks safety tips to keep in mind as you get ready to celebrate the 4th of July.
- Keep kids back. When it comes to fireworks, kids can get excited and unpredictable. Keep them further back than you think you need to, and keep a close eye on them.
- Keep adults back. If you aren’t the one shooting off the fireworks, stay back. Not all fireworks go where they should, and you don’t want to be involved in an accident.
- Follow all instructions. The fireworks have instructions for shooting them off to keep you safe. Don’t decide you know a “better” way to do things.
- Clean up afterward. Some firework casing may have sharp or hard edges. Even if they are no longer hot, a car running over debris can still cause damage.
The 4th of July is an exciting day to celebrate with friends and family. Stay safe at The Metropolitan with these tips.
