Firework Safety Tips

Jul 04, 2014

The Three Stooges aren’t a very careful trio. In celebration of the 4th of July holiday, Larry, Moe and Curly will give you some firework safety guidelines to prevent you from getting injured.  Tips will include: Use fireworks outdoors only and buy only legal fireworks.

USE FIREWORKS OUTDOORS ONLY

Lighting fireworks at home is not legal in many locations so make sure to check that you’re not violating any laws before you make a purchase.   Should it be allowed in your area, make sure to not set off any indoors as they are highly dangerous and are highly flammable.  For extra precaution, have a bucket of water or a fire extinguisher.

STEER CLEAR OF OTHERS

Fireworks have been known to backfire and shoot off in the wrong direction.  Never throw or point fireworks at anyone, including pets, even as a joke.

BUY ONLY LEGAL FIREWORKS

When making your purchase for fireworks, make sure to check the label for the manufacturer’s name and directions as illegal fireworks are unlabeled.  Illegal fireworks have been banned since the 1960s and are highly dangerous.  It also goes without saying that you should never try to make your own fireworks., even if they come in a kit.

DON’T RELIGHT A DUD

If a firework does not seem to work, douse it with water or hose it down.  Don’t make an attempt to relight it.

HAVE ADULT SUPERVISION AT ALL TIMES

 Never let children operate fireworks on their own, even sparklers.  Sparklers can reach 1800* F and can still be dangerous.  Make sure an adult is always present.

I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
