How to properly use Firecrackers



Pre-Show Setup
  • Set your firecrackers on a hard, flat, level surface
  • Make sure you have a clear, open space to light
  • Have a hose, fire extinguisher, or water supply at hand for emergencies
  • Make sure your audience is a safe distance away, a minimum of 30 feet
  • Keep firecrackers in their packaging until you are ready to use
Using Firecrackers
  • Be sure to wear Safety Glasses and Safety Gloves when lighting
  • Use a Phantom Pyro Torch, punk or extended lightener to light
  • Use a flashlight at night so you can see the fuse
  • After you light the fuse move a safe distance from the firecracker
  • Never re-use a firecracker that fails to light the first time, use a hose or other water source to soak the firecracker and safely dispose of the firecracker outdoors
  • Do not use with Alcohol
  • Never attempt to take a firecracker apart
  • Never hold a firecracker while lighting
  • Never put your head or any part of your body over a firecracker when lighting
