4th of July means celebrating with fireworks and BBQs.  Because we want to keep the celebration going well from start to finish, and have a safe holiday weekend, let’s make sure we follow these fireworks safety guidelines suggested by the Fireworks Safety Organization, especially when children are around:
  1. Use fireworks outdoors only.
  2. Obey local laws. If fireworks are not legal where you live, do not use them.
  3. Always have water handy. (A hose or bucket.
  4. Only use fireworks as intended. Don’t try to alter them or combine them.
  5. Never relight a “dud” firework. Wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water.
  6. Use common sense. Spectators should keep a safe distance from the shooter and the shooter should wear safety glasses.
  7. Alcohol and fireworks do not mix. Have a “designated shooter.
  8. Only persons over the age of 12 should be allowed to handle sparklers of any type.
  9. Do not ever use homemade fireworks of illegal explosives: They can kill you!
  10. Report illegal explosives to the fire or police department in your community.

The National Council on Fireworks Safety invites you to celebrate our nation’s heritage on the Fourth of July, but celebrate safely.

Along the way, I realized that motherhood didn’t come with a manual and frequently asked questions so I had to learn my way through with the help and advice of other mothers and that is how I decided to start a blog about tips for busy moms, The Moms Buzz, a lifestyle blog about only the buzz that matters. Modern moms are busy busy, and whatever tips make our lives easier we are ready to try them, we don’t have the time to read and read lengthy advices, but we can certainly read 1-2-3-SOLVED.
