For those using fireworks at their house, the following safety tips from the American Pyrotechnic Association have been established:

  • Always read label directions.
  • Always have an adult present and never give fireworks to small children.
  • Only ignite fireworks outdoors.
  • Have water nearby.
  • Never experiment or attempt to make your own fireworks.
  • Light only one at a time, and never re-ignite malfunctioning fireworks.
  • Never throw or set off fireworks toward another person.
  • Store fireworks in a cool, dry place and when you're done, dispose of them properly.

When attending public fireworks displays, safety also is a primary consideration. At these events, local officials establish a safety zone, and Zambelli recognizes the importance of these zones and relentlessly enforces safety initiatives to provide extra protection to spectators.

And the most important tip of all this holiday? The best way to view fireworks is to see performances crafted by professionals, like Zambelli Fireworks. Zambelli's experience and high standards have earned it one of the best safety records in the industry, and each step toward any Zambelli experience involves "Safety First".

To find out where Zambelli is celebrating across the country, look online at or contact your local government or media to locate the nearest professional fireworks show.
