Washington County, Arkansas – For anyone who didn’t get the chance to use all their fireworks during Independence Day celebrations, there’s a safe way to keep them for next year.
According to Chief William Hellard with the Farmington Fire Department, people can store a small number of fireworks safely. However, he suggests it is safer to not keep them at all.
According to Hellard, it is best to keep them in a dry plastic tub in a cool place. He also mentioned that deciding to store them is a risk, especially if a fire breaks out in the home.
“We’ve had fires where people have had fireworks in their homes, and it makes it a very exciting time for us as firefighters, so we prefer that you not store them in your home,” he said.
According to Hellard, everyone should be cautious of fireworks that have been left on the ground to avoid starting fires.
