Memorial Day is a great time to get together with your friends and family and celebrate those who died serving the country. Whether this is done by having a cookout or spending time at the beach, there are many ways you can enjoy time with your loved ones while remembering those who have passed. One of the best ways to kick off the event or end it with a bang is by setting off fireworks. If you do plan to shoot off some fireworks, there are some things you should know to ensure everyone is safe and you have the most fun.
Fireworks can be dangerous if not handled with care. It is important that you know the dangers of using them improperly to avoid being injured when launching them off. You also want to protect anyone who is around. When setting off any fireworks, you need an ample amount of space. This includes launching them away from both people and structures. Should a firework land on the roof of a house, it could quickly catch on fire.
Majority of the fireworks you purchase have safety precautions printed right on the packaging. Many of them also come with instructions detailing how to use them. Make sure you read all the information before handling them. If you aren’t already familiar with the fireworks and how they operate, you need to do your research before launching them.
What to Buy
When it comes to purchasing fireworks for your event, you need to gauge how much space you will have to launch them off. If your space is limited, you want to make sure you get fireworks that don’t require a lot of room to launch. You want to look for Class C fireworks. These are the fireworks that are designated for consumers to purchase. Since you will probably be setting them off in your backyard, these will be perfect for your needs.
There are many types of Class C fireworks available for purchase. Some of the most common ones you can find include aerials, roman candles, and sparklers. You can purchase these separately or in a package that includes a variety of your favorites. If you still aren’t sure about which ones to buy, you can talk to the expert who is selling them. They can give you advice on which ones will best for your space and experience.
Before you go on your search to purchase fireworks, you want to find out what your local laws say about setting off fireworks. Many areas have restrictions on what times and what types of fireworks are able to be launched. You can contact the city hall to get a clear answer on the local rules on fireworks. Should you get caught setting off fireworks that are illegal, you could incur a hefty fine depending on your local laws. It is not worth the risk to set off illegal fireworks. There are plenty that would work for your situation that are legal.
