Fireworks Safety Tips from Sioux Falls Fire Rescue

Sioux Falls Fire Marshall Dean Lanier says it’s a good idea for residents to check out the many fireworks displays open to the public on July 4th.

“What we would encourage parents to do as far as fireworks safety is concerned—take their kids to one of the fireworks shows that will be taking place in Sioux Falls and around the area.  We think that’s the safest method to enjoy a fireworks show.  Everybody will leave from the show safe and secure for the night and have an enjoyable July 4th weekend.”

If you’re planning on setting off fireworks with your family, Lanier says make sure the children are safe.

“We like to encourage parents to manage the fireworks themselves and they themselves handle the fireworks.  It’s not a good idea to let the children handle the fireworks.  Always read the warning labels and comply with the restrictions and warnings on the packages.”

Lanier says it’s also important to keep a bucket of water nearby!
