Know the Facts about Fireworks Safety
Fireworks and the Fourth of July go together like, well…fireworks and the Fourth of July! As always, the Burnsville Fire Department wants all residents to have a safe and enjoyable Fourth of July celebration. In order to do so, it is important for residents to know what types of fireworks are legal in Minnesota, and how to use them safely.
First and foremost, fireworks should only be used by adults or under close adult supervision.
Only legal fireworks should be purchased and ignited in Burnsville. Illegal fireworks include any that explode and/or fly (bottle rockets, firecrackers, missiles, Roman candles or artillery shells.)
Never try to alter or manufacture fireworks.
Never aim fireworks at a building, people or anything combustible or flammable.
Do not try to re-light fireworks that do not work. Stay away from them and soak them in water before handling.
Use eye protection when handling fireworks.
Consider leaving the fireworks to the professionals and attending one of the many shows around the metropolitan area.
