As July approaches, Salem residents are eagerly gearing up for Independence Day celebrations. Fireworks have long been a cherished part of these festivities, offering dazzling displays of light and color. While Salem currently allows personal fireworks within certain regulations, it's crucial to prioritize safety to prevent accidents and fires. For current guidelines, refer to the City of Salem's County Fire Agency.

Firework Safety for Home Shows

Even with permitted personal fireworks, safety should always be a top priority when celebrating at home. Here are essential tips to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience:

Choose a Safe Location: Set off fireworks in a clear, open area away from buildings, dry grass, and other flammable materials.

Supervise Closely: Never leave fireworks unattended, especially when children or pets are present.

Keep Water Handy: Have a bucket of water or a hose nearby to extinguish fireworks or in case of emergencies.

Follow Instructions: Read and follow the manufacturer's instructions for each firework item carefully.

Dispose Properly: After use, soak fireworks thoroughly in water before disposing of them to prevent accidental fires.
