Check the Local Calendar
If you’re headed out of town, check out the local festivities wherever you’re going – you can typically access this from the Chamber of Commerce website of your host city/town. A schedule of local events can give you a great idea of what to expect, what to do, and where the best viewing spots are for any fireworks displays.
Play By the Rules
Get started on the right foot: play by the rules! Check with the campground you’re staying at for their fireworks policies. These might range from no fireworks allowed whatsoever to simple things like sparklers and firecrackers, but rules are rules. Check the policies in advance, and abide by them. Fireworks policies may vary by state or county or even directly by the weather and recent climate. – and sometimes are directly impacted by how dry the climate is or have specific ordinances around which fireworks are legal.
Safety First, Second, and Third
The best way to stay injury-free this 4th of July is to light your fireworks according to the package directions. Only light one at a time and never overfill firing canisters. If you’re consuming any alcohol whatsoever, hand the lighter to someone else. Alcohol and fireworks simply do not mix, so let someone fully sober do the lighting.
The loud booms from fireworks can be triggering or frightening for many individuals. These include military veterans, toddlers and young children, and individuals who suffer from PTSD or high anxiety. Pets can also experience anxiety from the booms. Some pets can be aided by wearing a weighted jacket and toddlers may need to head inside instead of being forced wait through the fireworks.
