Fireworks Safety

By  | 

July 4th is only about a week away and people are already thinking about fireworks. It's also important to think about fireworks safety. The general manager of the Fireworks Outlet, John Ingersoll, has years of first-hand experience.

Ingersoll says, "Kids love fireworks. They always get excited by them, but the bottom line is that you’re working with fire, so have an adult present. That’s the first and biggest piece of advice I could give you."

Also know what you are buying. Ingersoll explains, "If you’re getting the artillery shells, understand the difference between putting in the shell correctly..."

It's also important to know the law in relation to fireworks. For information on what is legal to use in Cheyenne, go to http://www.cheyennecity.org/civicalerts.aspx?aid=2014
