Safety tips for fireworks

Updated: Friday, July 4 2014, 12:34 PM CDT
It's hard to resist
lighting up fireworks for the Fourth of July.
As fun as this is, it's important to be safe, because it can lead to
serious injury.
Long lines filled the tent at TNT fireworks on Mobile Highway.
The day before the 4th brings in lots of people buying last minute
items for their celebrations.

"We're gonna avoid the traffic. We've got some family in town and we'll
shoot some off with the kids. Try to have a good time," said Clay
Norman.

TNT Fireworks will stay open until midnight Thursday, and midnight
Friday.
More inventory was brought in because last year they sold out by the
Fourth.

"Smoke is really popular and then the pops, it's the one where you throw
it on the ground, pop, pop, pop. Kids love those. I love them and I'm
24 years old," said Matt Goetsch, TNT Fireworks.

There are hundreds of types of fireworks to choose from here, like
sparklers or smoke bombs.

"You light them up and throw them and they blow up in different colors,"
said Andrew.

But with that cause some serious warnings.
Each year, thousands get sent to the ER because of firework related
injuries.
Most injuries occur on the hands or face.
Before you light up, make sure you have a bucket of water nearby,
and don't let kids near any that are lit.

"If you're going to use fireworks, my biggest recommendation is to have
adult supervision, don't allow children to use them unsupervised," said
David Allen, Pensacola Fire Marshal.
