Never try to relight a "dud" firework or sparkler
Always keep a fire extinguisher and/or hose nearby in case of fires
Never give fireworks to small children
Store fireworks in a cool, dry place
Pool safety is always an important topic when living in Scottsdale, Arizona but this is a perfect time to reinforce the rules with your family!

Take shifts as the "lifeguard" on duty. Always clearly communicate who has the responsibility of watching children around the pool
Never consume alcohol while driving a boat

Apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes prior to going in the water
Make sure you are drinking enough water, especially if you are consuming alcohol

Fireworks aren't the only fire hazard to watch out for this weekend!
