Firework Safety


Several years ago, Utah Fabrication decided to switch insurance brokers. We didn't feel that we were getting great service from our previous broker. Year after year our rates went up even though we had zero claims. We received a proposal from American Insurance with several insurance companies. The savings was significant. Our previous agent had never sought competing bids on our behalf. Since then, we have received excellent service from American Insurance. They have gone above and beyond what most agencies are willing to do for their clients. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Every year, fireworks cause fires and burns

The foothills are full of excess fuel. This year especially we are in danger of fireworks-related fires. The safest, most patriotic, most adult, best thing to do is to NOT USE FIREWORKS. Instead, go to a public fireworks display.

If you use fireworks at home:

  • Take extra care to teach your children about fireworks safety.
  • First, read the directions on each device before using. Study these guidelines.
  • KEEP PLENTY OF BUCKETS OF WATER HANDY. Soak used fireworks 6 hours in water before discarding.
  • Keep fireworks away from small children. Even sparklers can burn at 2000 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Use only by responsible adults and older children under close adult supervision wearing sturdy cotton clothing covering arms, body, and legs.
  • Choose a safe place outdoors. Use a bare flat circle area. For aerial: (Rockets) at least 100 feet across, non-aerial: at least 30 feet across.
