Tips for having a fun/safe family fireworks show

There will be fireworks shows in all parts of the area over this Fourth of July weekend, but a lot of other fireworks will be set off at homes and other locations. Logan Fire Marshal Craig Humphreys says you can’t be too careful when using fireworks. First, he says, children should always have adult supervision. “Always set (the fireworks) on a good, hard surface where they won’t tip over,” Humphreys continues. “Keep a bucket of water or hose close and handy. “And make sure we get them drenched and wetted down very well before we discard them in the garbage can. We’ve had fires in the past where they’re discarded in the garbage can but there are still embers which start the garbage can on fire.” On KVNU’s For the People program Thursday night Humphreys also cautioned people to only use legal fireworks.
