Heywood Community Management wishes you a safe and Happy New Year. Please read these safety tips below in regard to Fireworks.

Fireworks-related injuries are most common on and around holidays associated with fireworks celebrations. This New Year's Eve, celebrate while following these tips to ensure your safety with regard to fireworks:

  • The best way to enjoy fireworks is to visit public fireworks displays put on by professionals.
  • If you plan to use fireworks, make sure they are legal in your area.
  • Never light fireworks indoors or near dry grass.
  • Always have a bucket of water and/or a fire extinguisher nearby. Know how to operate the fire extinguisher properly.
  • Do not wear loose clothing while using fireworks.
  • Stand several feet away from lit fireworks.
  • If a device does not go off, do not stand over it to investigate it. Put it out with water and dispose of it.
  • Always read the directions and warning labels on fireworks. If it is not marked with the contents, directions, and a warning label, do not light it.
  • Supervise children around fireworks at all times.

Please enjoy your holiday and be safe this coming weekend! #homeownersassociation #hoa #safetytips
