PULLMAN – The Washington State Fire Marshal’s Office offers an activity guide to assist parents in teaching kids about the safe and responsible use of fireworks.
Of the fireworks-related injuries reported in Washington State in 2021, nearly 19% involved children under the age of 14.
The SFMO believes that helping parents teach kids about firework safety can help to reduce injuries this year.
The guide features fun activities, puzzles, and facts about firework safety that will entertain and educate kids about staying safe this Independence Day. The updated activity book is available at http://www.wsp.wa.gov/fireworks/.
Be Prepared – Be Safe – Be Responsible
