For every firework sold, a warning label covers the side of the packaging, letting users know the potential dangers of using the festive display. According to the consumer product safety commission, there were more than 10 thousand people treated for fireworks related injuries in the United States last year.
“We make sure to let them know when they’re looking at the fireworks what each one does specifically and how to properly use it,” said Manager of Wicked fireworks, Jose Perez. “We let them know the dangers of each and every fireworks specifically especially with mortars, the danger of them tipping over. And with some of the other aerial fireworks you have to have a clear open space,” added Perez.
