We understand that fireworks are often used to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday. Although we say leave it to the professionals, below are some fireworks safety tips. Please remember that aerial fireworks are still illegal in New Jersey.
Recommended Safety Tips:
• Know your fireworks; read the cautionary labels and performance descriptions before igniting.
• A responsible adult MUST supervise all firework activities. Never give fireworks to children.
• Alcohol and fireworks do not mix.
• Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks.
• Light one firework at a time and then quickly move away.
• Use fireworks OUTDOORS in a clear area; away from buildings and vehicles.
• Never relight a “dud” firework. Wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water.
• Always have a bucket of water and charged water hose nearby.
• Never carry fireworks in your POCKET or shoot them into METAL or GLASS.
• Dispose of spent fireworks by wetting them down and place in a metal trash can away from any building or combustible materials until the next day.
Stay safe and enjoy the holiday!! ... See MoreSee Less
Can embers catch? Like roof.Asking because neighbors shower house with aerials and know it coming tonight always makes me nervous
A recent note from a local resident regarding a nice gesture by Firefighter Haemmerle while stopped at a traffic light recently. We hope this aspiring firefighter will stop by the station for a visit soon.
"I just wanted to let you all know you made my sons day! We were pulled up next to one of your trucks at the light of Route 33 and Route 130. My son rolled down his window to say hi. The driver got out and gave both of my kids a hat. When my son got home he immediately ran upstairs to put on his fireman jacket. His room is decorated with all emergency response, mostly fireman detail. Thank you so much." ... See MoreSee Less
We just had a similar experience. My little guy was really freaked out about firemen coming to check out a grill that one of the neighbors thought was on fire... Then one of them came over & gave him a hat. Totally made his day. So sweet!!
Love our Fire Fighters!
Edmund J Haemmerle III... nice job!!
