COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - As people in the Lake City are getting ready to celebrate the Fourth of July, the Couer d'Alene Fire Department wants people to remember some important safety tips and regulations while celebrating Independence Day.
The Coeur d'Alene Fire Department said to look for the "safe and sane" stamp on firework packages that indicate it's a non-aerial common firework like ground spinners, fountains and sparklers.
It also means the sparks won't go outside a 20 foot diameter or above 20 feet and won't move outside a 15 foot diameter.Fireworks safety Coeur d'Alene
In all cases fire safety is very important.
The fire department used a thermal imaging camera on a firework that hit around 800 degrees. In comparison, metal sparklers, often given to children, can reach temperatures above 1,200 degrees.
People should keep fire extinguishers, a bucket of water or a hose along with a metal garbage can nearby when lighting fireworks.
And remember, fireworks are not allowed on city property, including parks.
