Loudoun Fire Officials Offer Critical Fireworks Safety Tips and 2022 Fireworks Event Schedule

fireworks safety and 2022 Events NF

The Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System (LC-CFRS) wants to ensure a memorable and SAFE Fourth of July holiday for you and your family. Fireworks cause thousands of serious injuries every year, sending adults and children to the emergency room. LC-CFRS encourages residents to leave fireworks to the experts and attend professionally coordinated fireworks shows instead of using fireworks on your own.

If you choose to use fireworks, know the risks, PROCEED WITH CAUTION and follow these tips!

DON'T use illegal fireworks!  DO use only legal fireworks purchased from a retail stand with a Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office permit. 
DON’T use fireworks while impaired by drugs or alcohol!
DON'T light fireworks indoors! DO use fireworks a safe distance away from homes, and steer clear of brush, leaves and flammable substances. Keep a bucket of water or a garden hose nearby.
NEVER allow young children to play with or ignite fireworks. DO maintain constant adult supervision.
DON'T light fireworks in your hand! DO place fireworks on stable ground, never in a container, and ensure the device will not tip over when firing.
NEVER point or throw fireworks at anyone!
DON'T try to re-light "a dud" or malfunctioning firework! DO soak spent fireworks in water for several hours before discarding into a fire-proof container. Keep the container outside, away from the home.
