But before your family celebrates, make sure ev- eryone knows about fire- works safety. If not handled properly, fireworks can cause burn and eye injuries in kids and adults. In the recent years, six deaths were linked to fireworks and hospital emergency departments treated 9,300 fireworks in- juries. The best way to protect your family is not to use any fireworks at home -- period. Attend public fire- works displays, and leave the lighting to the profes- sionals. Lighting fire- works at home isn't even legal in many areas, so if you still want to use them, be sure to check with your local police department first. If they're legal where you live, keep these safety tips in mind: Kids should nev- er play with fireworks. Things like firecrackers, rockets, and sparklers are just too dangerous. If you give kids sparklers, make sure they keep them out- side and away from the face, clothing, and hair. Sparklers can reach 1,800 Fahrenheit (982 Celsius) -- hot enough to melt gold. Buy only legal fireworks (legal fireworks have a label with the manufacturer's name and directions; illegal ones are unlabeled), and store them in a cool, dry place. Illegal fireworks usually go by the names M-80, M100, blockbuster, or quarter- pounder. These explosives were banned in 1966, but still account for many fire- works injuries. * Never try to make your own fireworks. Always use fire- works outside and have a bucket of water and a hose nearby in case of ac- cidents. Steer clear of oth- ers -- fireworks have been known to backfire or shoot off in the wrong direction. Never throw or point fire- works at someone, even in jest. Don't hold fire- works in your hand or have any part of your body over them while lighting. Wear some sort of eye pro- tection, and avoid carrying fireworks in your pocket -- the friction could set them off. Point fireworks away from homes, and keep away from brush and leaves and flammable sub- stances. Local fire depart- ments respond to more 50,000 fires caused by fire- works each year. Light one fire- work at a time (not in glass or metal containers), and never relight a dud. Don't allow kids to pick up pieces of fireworks after an event. Some may still be ignited and can ex- plode at any time. Soak all fireworks in a bucket of water before throwing them in the trash Can. Think about your pet or nearby animals. Animals have sensitive ears and can be extremely frightened or stressed on the Fourth of July. Keep pets indoors to reduce the risk that they'll run loose or get injured. If a child is injured by fireworks, immediately go to a doctor or hospital. If an eye injury occurs, don't allow yoor child to touch or rub it, as this may cause even more damage. Also, don't flush the eye out with water or attempt to put any ointment on it. Instead, cut out the bottom of a paper cup, place it around the eye, and immediately seek medical attention -- your child's eyesight may de- pend on it. If it's a burn, remove clothing from the burned area and run cool, not cold, water over the burn (do not use ice). Call your doctor immediately. Fireworks are meant to be enjoyed, but you'll enjoy them much more knowing your family is safe. Take extra precautions this Fourth of July and your holiday will be" a blast!
