10 Sparkler Safety Tips

For many people, it’s not Fourth of July without sparklers.

While sparklers don’t pose the same dangers as fireworks, sparkler safety is still something you’ll want to keep in mind.

That’s because the Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that sparklers can burn at 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit–that’s as hot as a blow torch! Sparklers, which cause nine percent of all fireworks burns and other injuries, are especially likely to injure children.

Fortunately, there are easy sparkler safety do’s and don’ts. Good Housekeeping magazine has 10 sparkler safety tips to keep you and your family safe this Fourth of July and all summer long.

Crack! Pop! Sparklers are a mainstay of Fourth of July celebrations. Learn the right way to enjoy them in this post. /blog/sparkler-safety Erie Insurance https://www.erieinsurance.com/-/media/images/erieinsurance/erieinsurancelogo.png
