BASICS

First and foremost, fireworks are not toys. They are explosive devices and should be handled with great care. Store fireworks in a dry, cool place when not using.

KEEP YOUR DISTANCE

Once you light your firework get back as far as you can. Distance is your friend. Nervous about the short fuse? Purchase a safety fuse at Dean's to make it a bit longer.

SAFETY CHECKLIST

Paranoid you may forget something? Don't be afraid to make yourself a safety checklist before starting the big show! Use these topics as good bullet points.

ADULTS ONLY

Fireworks, no matter the size, are meant to be handled by adults 18 years or older. You must be 18 to purchase fireworks in the state of Indiana.

PROTECTIVE GEAR

When using fireworks, always use protective gear. Gloves, safety glasses, and ear protection are a must. These will help prevent injury when firing your effects.
