Fireworks and the 4th: stay safe, legal (07/03/2013)
By Jen Burris

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety recently released guidelines on how to celebrate the 4th of July safely this year. Under current Minnesota law, non-explosive and non-arial fireworks are legal. Examples of a legal firework would be sparklers, snakes, and snappers. Exploding and flying fireworks remain illegal, including -- but not limited to --firecrackers (any size), bottle rockets, and Roman candles. For a complete list of legal and illegal fireworks in the state of Minnesota visit http://ow.ly/mgAbr.

Safety Tips

Read instructions on every device.

Have adult supervision when children are involved.

Use fireworks away from animals, buildings, storage tanks, brush, and other combustibles.

Keep a bucket of water nearby to extinguish fireworks.

Do not allow the use of fireworks by anyone who may be under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Light one device at a time.

Do not relight a device that did not ignite the first time.

If it looks damaged, donít use it.
