They’re fireworks and before you light up this weekend, there are some tips you need to remember.
“Always have a water source on hand, always use eye protection, and always have adult supervision,” said John Jones, owner of Big Daddy's Fireworks in Wetumpka.
Sure those are the more obvious precautions, but also the most forgotten.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, 7,000 injuries from fireworks were reported in 2008.
The most common were burns because even the smallest of fireworks burn up to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit.
But even with those staggering statistics, firework related injuries are going down.
"The biggest thing is that state laws are making people more aware of things going on, and to take more safety precautions,” said Jones.
Precautions that change with season…
"The thing about this time of year is that you wear more long sleeves than short sleeves, so make sure you don't have frayed sleeves that will start a fire on you,” said Jones.
Shooting fireworks in the cities of Montgomery, Prattville and Wetumpka is illegal.
The only places you can shoot them are unincorporated parts of Montgomery and Elmore counties, and the city of Millbrook.
