Many of us will be enjoying spectacular fireworks displays this weekend as we celebrate the Fourth of July, whether it’s at a city park or in our own backyard. For those who bring the fun home, it’s important to remember to keep safety a priority so that a joyous occasion doesn’t turn tragic.

I stopped by Fox 6 studios this week to chat with the folks at Real Milwaukee and shared some facts about fireworks safety (putting special emphasis on sparklers). I think you’ll find some valuable info here.

Have a happy and healthy Fourth of July!
