Firework sales have started and the City of Cape is reminding you to use them safely. Adult supervision is the law. Even sparklers burn at temperatures of 1,200 degrees or more – hot enough to melt some metals. Back up to a safe distance immediately after lighting fireworks. Never place any part of your body directly over a fireworks device when lighting the fuse. Never try to re-light or pick up fireworks that have not ignited fully. Find more safety tips online or find the Fire Department or Police Department on social media for more tips. The City prohibits the sale and/or discharge of fireworks within a certain distance of schools, hospitals, gas pumps, etc.
