Want to learn to build Fireworks?

Start by READING & LEARNING first!!!

A great book to begin with is ‘Dictionary & Manual of Fireworks by Weingart ‘.

“FACT:  Over 95% of fireworks injuries are caused by the mis-use of fireworks!  Always read labels carefully and NEVER aim fireworks in the direction of any other person!  Let’s CELEBRATE SAFELY”!!  “If hand-lighting your holiday fireworks, never lean any part of your body (that you would like to keep) over the direct path of the exiting effect!  Always crouch low and lean over low with your ignition source to touch to the fuse”.

It is believed that “firecrackers” were first discovered in China during the Han dynasty (~200 B.C.), when pieces of green bamboo were thrown into fire. They sizzled and exploded startling everyone around.

It is believed …


The most dangerous time for pyrotechnicians is immediately after a show when they must manually inspect mortars for live rounds. Some pyrotechnicians have had live shells explode on them causing 3rd degree burns to their upper body and face.

The name of cakes aerial fireworks derives from the fact that they look like a cake, it is a box packed of interconnected roman candles and aerial shells.

Fireworks Safety Tips for Kids and Families


Fireworks are incredible but they can be dangerous. Please follow some simple rules from Kids Health and never give children fireworks to play with. Safety first!

Lighting fireworks at home isn’t even legal in many areas, so if you want to use them, be sure to check with your local police department first. If they’re legal where you live, keep these safety tips in mind:

  • Kids should never play with fireworks. Things like firecrackers, rockets, and sparklers are just too dangerous. If you give kids sparklers, make sure they keep them outside and away from the face, clothing, and hair. Sparklers can reach 1,800°F (982°C) — hot enough to melt gold.
  • Buy only legal fireworks (legal fireworks have a label with the manufacturer’s name and directions; illegal ones are unlabeled), and store them in a cool, dry place. Illegal fireworks usually go by the names M-80, M100, blockbuster, or quarterpounder. These explosives were banned in 1966, but still account for many fireworks injuries.
  • Never try to make your own fireworks.
  • Always use fireworks outside and have a bucket of water and a hose nearby in case of accidents.
  • Steer clear of others — fireworks have been known to backfire or shoot off in the wrong direction. Never throw or point fireworks at someone, even in jest.
  • Don’t hold fireworks in your hand or have any part of your body over them while lighting. Wear some sort of eye protection, and avoid carrying fireworks in your pocket — the friction could set them off.
  • Point fireworks away from homes, and keep away from brush and leaves and flammable substances. The National Fire Protection Association estimates that local fire departments respond to more 50,000 fires caused by fireworks each year.
  • Light one firework at a time (not in glass or metal containers), and never relight a dud.
  • Don’t allow kids to pick up pieces of fireworks after an event. Some may still be ignited and can explode at any time.
  • Soak all fireworks in a bucket of water before throwing them in the trash can.
  • Think about your pet. Animals have sensitive ears and can be extremely frightened or stressed on the Fourth of July. Keep pets indoors to reduce the risk that they’ll run loose or get injured.
  • If a child is injured by fireworks, immediately go to a doctor or hospital. If an eye injury occurs, don’t allow your child to touch or rub it, as this may cause even more damage. Also, don’t flush the eye out with water or attempt to put any ointment on it. Instead, cut out the bottom of a paper cup, place it around the eye, and immediately seek medical attention — your child’s eyesight may depend on it. If it’s a burn, remove clothing from the burned area and run cool, not cold, water over the burn (do not use ice). Call your doctor immediately.
