Being safe with sparklers

WATERLOO (KWWL)-- Many Iowans enjoy the Fourth of July by lighting their own fireworks, but sparklers and snake fireworks are the only legal fireworks Iowans are able to do themselves.

Here are some safety tips from the Waterloo Fire Department when enjoying sparklers.

-Sparklers should be used under direct supervision.

-Never hold of light more than one sparkler at a time.

-Never hand a lighted sparkler to someone.  Give them an unlit sparkler then light it.

-Never throw, twirl, or wave sparklers.
