-Fire Marshal Chief John Pflasterer, North Little Rock Fire Department had some helpful Fireworks Safety Tips to share in honor of National Fireworks Safety Month.  Always remember safety first.  Make sure fireworks are legal in your area before buying or using them. Fireworks are a staple at festivities for many Americans during the summer months.  Unfortunately, many people do not realize just how dangerous fireworks and sparklers can be, which is a primary reason that injuries occur.  The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission has safety tips available to help consumers promote safe and responsible use of fireworks.  Obey all local laws regarding the use of fireworks.  Know your fireworks; read the cautionary labels and performance descriptions before igniting. If you are under the influence of alcohol, do not shoot off any fireworks. Wear safety goggles.  Never carry fireworks in your pocket or shoot them into metal or glass containers. A responsible adult should supervise all firework activities. Never give fireworks to children. Soak all firework debris in water before throwing away.  Keep spectators a safe distance away.  Never try to re-light a firework that did not properly ignite.  For safety tips and information, visit the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission at
