Fireworks Safety

Summer celebrations are coming up and West Virginians will be busy with cookouts, family reunions and community parades. Unfortunately, celebrations can quickly turn to tragedy for families, especially when children and teenagers are killed or permanently injured by so-called “safe and sane” fireworks. “ANY fireworks-type materials are dangerous,” states Acting State Fire Marshal Anthony Carrico. “Even sparklers can burn hot enough to melt gold and cause third degree burns. Basically, there is no such thing as safe fireworks.”
