Florida Fireworks Q&A: What’s legal and what’s not?

Published: Tuesday, June 25, 2013 at 09:26 AM.

• Never try to relight or pick up fireworks that have not ignited fully.

• Keep a bucket of water or a garden hose handy in case of fire or other mishap.

• After fireworks have burned, douse them with water before discarding them.

South Walton Fire Chief Rick Talbert said even legal items burn at high temperatures and can lead to injury.

"Our encouragement to people is to leave the shows to the pros,” he said.
