Fireworks Safety Tips

Independence Day in the U.S. is a time to celebrate our patriotism, and a lot of people love to do it by lighting up the sky. It's important to remind people that fireworks are illegal in Georgia and in some parts of the Lowcountry.

There are a number of free fireworks shows put on by experts that will take place in the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry, but if you do live in an area where it's legal and decide to set off your own fireworks, here are some safety tips for you to follow.

  • Be sure to read and follow the directions on the fireworks.
  • Do not relight broken or used fireworks.
  • Make sure you keep an eye on children.
  • Make sure you have a water source nearby for emergencies.
