Don’t make these mistakes when using fireworks

CAPE CORAL, Fla. — Independence Day weekend brings families and friends together to celebrate the founding of our nation, but those celebrations often bring dangerous or illegal situations.

No matter the size of your firework display, you should follow all safety precautions and never break the law.

Amendments to the law in Florida have made the calendar dates of July 4th, December 31st, and January 1st the only dates where fireworks are permitted. Setting off fireworks before or after those dates is illegal.

Also, be aware of local noise ordinances. In Cape Coral, people must respect the 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. noise ordinance. Fireworks are not exempt from this rule.

Lastly, be sure to check in with your neighbors before setting off fireworks as they can distress combat veterans and pets.

Here are some safety tips to keep in mind this weekend:

  • Never let young children light or handle fireworks.
  • Use fireworks away from people, houses, and flammable material.
  • Only light one device at a time and maintain a safe distance after lighting.
  • Do not ignite devices in a container.
  • Do not use fireworks while under the influence of any drugs or alcohol.
  • Keep a garden hose or bucket of water handy in case of fire, and soak spent or unused fireworks before throwing them away.
