5 Great Places to Watch July Fourth Fireworks in L.A

The fireworks must be "safe and sane" which means they've been tested and approved by local fire departments.

DeKalb Deputy Fire Chief James Zarek said that, on average across the country, 250 people go to the emergency room every day and seven people die because of firework-related injuries in the month around July 4.

CAL FIRE said to always use fireworks outside, and to never light them on or near dry grass or flammable materials, as this can increase the chances of starting a wildfire. When lit, some sparklers can reach temperatures between 1,300 and 1,800 degrees - at least 200 degrees hotter than standard butane lighters.

-Only use fireworks outdoors in a clear area; away from buildings and vehicles.

"For a five day, six day period, the department would triple or quadruple their run volume because of fires and we couldn't take care of the people that need us for medical emergencies", said Rick Freier, Spokane Valley Fire Department. In Florida, there are few legal consumer fireworks.

As an extra precaution, have a fire extinguisher, water supply, hose or bucket of water nearby.

The San Diego Fire-Rescue Department estimates they respond to 500 incidents each year involving fireworks.
