Happy 4th & Firework Tips

The Kensington Grove HOA would like to wish everyone a happy 4th of July! To stay safe this week, below are some important tips for using fireworks.

Tips are sourced from The National Safety Council.

  1. Review all local, state, and federal laws regarding the use and operation of fireworks.
  2. Keep a bucket of water nearby to fully extinguish fireworks that don’t go off or in case of fire. Soak both spent and unused fireworks in water for a few hours before discarding.
  3. Only use them away from people, houses and flammable material.
  4. Only light one device at a time and maintain a safe distance after lighting.
  5. Never allow young children to handle fireworks.
