Have a Safe 4th of July Weekend!
We would like to remind everyone that only Safe & Sane fireworks are allowed in Idaho. Aerial fireworks require a permit and may only be deployed by a licensed pyrotech. Keep a bucket of water or a garden hose handy in case of fire or other mishap.
If you and your family choose to use consumer fireworks, please take extra precautions to keep yourself, your family and surroundings safe.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), between 2009 and 2013, U.S. fire departments responded to an annual average of 18,500 fires caused by fireworks. These fires included 1,300 structure fires, 300 vehicle fires, 16,900 outside and other fires, and two fatalities per year.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), more than half of fireworks injuries each year are to extremities - hand or finger (36%), legs (14%), and arms (5%). Most of the remaining injuries were to parts of the head (38%), including the eye (16%).
