Fireworks pose a significant risk to lives and property. These can result in severe burns, fractures, cars, disgigurement or even death. Even sparklers, which many people think of as hrmless, reach temperatures of 1,000-1,800 degrees. Bottle rockets, which are aerial rockets mounted on sticks are typcally placed in a soda bottle or a can for ignition. They tend to fly erractically, ofter striking innocent bystanders and can prematurely explode, injuring or killing both those using them and those struck by them. Bottle rocks also land on rooftops or near homes, and they retain enough heat to cause both structure and wildland fires.
Because of the extreme danger fireworks can pose to life and property. We wish you that engage in purchasing and using them do so with extreme caution.
