Fireworks Safety

Firework Season in Missouri:
June 20 - July 10
December 20 - January 2

Fireworks are dangerous and best enjoyed by watching professional demonstrations. The American Burn Association recommends professional displays to reduce the potential of burn injuries from amateur or personal displays. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), approximately 4,700 children age fourteen and under suffer from fireworks-related injuries every year in the United States. Burns from improper use of sparklers and other legal fireworks, as well as from illegal fireworks, usually involve the hands, face, arms, and chest.
