By Chief Jack Law III
July 3, 2020

The officers and members of the West Bradford Fire Co would like to wish everyone a Safe, Healthy and Happy Independence Day. As many of the festivities that we normally would attend on July 4 are cancelled and most local professional firework displays are cancelled due to COVID 19, we ask that if you are at home or out at a family gathering and are using fireworks of any kind we ask that you use good judgement and be respectful of your neighbors. There are many people and pets within our community that are frightened by fireworks, and there are many fires per year that are started by fireworks, as well as serious burns to bystanders and individuals using fireworks. Please if you are going to use fireworks make sure you are in an open area, not around any vehicles, buildings, houses, and most importantly people. Please see the safety tips below on the use of fireworks if you are going to do so, this list is a brief and not entire list of safety tips put out by the National Council on Fireworks Safety.

Promoting safe and responsible use of consumer fireworks

Recommended Safety Tips
Obey all local laws regarding the use of fireworks.
Know your fireworks; read the cautionary labels and performance descriptions before igniting.
A responsible adult SHOULD supervise all firework activities. Never give fireworks to children.
Alcohol and fireworks do not mix. Save your alcohol for after the show.
Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks.
Light one firework at a time and then quickly move away.
Use fireworks OUTDOORS in a clear area; away from buildings and vehicles.
Never relight a “dud” firework. Wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water.
Always have a bucket of water and charged water hose nearby.
Never carry fireworks in your POCKET or shoot them into METAL or GLASS containers.
Do not experiment with homemade fireworks.
Dispose of spent fireworks by wetting them down and place in a metal trash can away from any building or combustible materials until the next day.
FAA regulations PROHIBIT the possession and transportation of fireworks in your checked baggage or carry-on luggage.
Report illegal explosives, like M-80s and quarter sticks, to the fire or police department.
