South Carolina state law prohibits fireworks from being sold to anyone younger than 16 years of age. For those choosing to use consumer fireworks, the Hartsville Fire Department suggests these safety tips:

  • Observe local laws. If unsure whether it is legal to use fireworks, check with local officials.
  • Monitor local weather conditions. Dry weather can make it easier for fireworks to start a fire.
  • Buy from permitted fireworks retailers.
  • Store fireworks in a cool, dry place.
  • Always have an adult present when shooting fireworks.
  • Use common sense. Always read and follow the directions on each firework.
  • Only use fireworks outdoors, away from homes, dry grass, and trees.
  • Ensure people and pets are out of range before lighting fireworks.
  • Light one firework at a time and keep a safe distance.
  • Put used fireworks in a bucket of water; keep a garden hose on hand.

Never:

  • Point or throw fireworks at another person.
  • Re-ignite malfunctioning fireworks.
  • Experiment or attempt to make your own fireworks.
  • Give fireworks to small children.
  • Carry fireworks in your pocket.
  • Shoot fireworks from metal or glass containers.
  • Place any part of your body directly over a fireworks device when lighting the fuse. Back up to a safe distance immediately after lighting fireworks.
