Firework safety important this holiday weekend

(WLNS) – More and more reports of fireworks injuries are coming in, so we have some safety advice to pass along.

  • Always supervise children who are around fireworks.
  • Have water or a fire extinguisher nearby in case something catches fire.
  • Never hold fireworks when the fuse is lit.
  • Pay attention to safety labels.

Jackson County Sheriff Steve Rand reminds everyone that fireworks can be very dangerous and even deadly if they’re not used properly.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
