IL law lists hand-held explosive devices, pin wheels, chasers, firecrackers, torpedoes, skyrockets, roman candles and buzz bombs as illegal.

The Scott Fire Department wants residents to stay safe during their Independence Day celebrations.

Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks.

The emergency room sees more firework-related injuries during warmer months between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Report illegal explosives, like M-80s and quarter sticks, to the fire or police department.

The most reported area injured is hands and fingers, while head and face are second, Pinder said. While these activities encourage fun times and great memories, it is important to understand that they also pose serious threats and risks if they are not approached with caution.

The Michigan Fireworks Safety Act of 2011, which eased restrictions on the types of fireworks that consumers may detonate, took effect January 1, 2012.

Certain fireworks are legal and include smoke pellets, smoke grenades, glow snakes and sparklers.

It's against the law to set off consumers fireworks from streets and sidewalks or on any property other than your own without the permission of the property owner.

There were several Craigslist advertisements selling illegal fireworks posted as recently as two weeks ago, according to Cal Fire.

Fireworks that shoot into the air are sold at stands in Florida, but are against the law.

Every year before the Fourth of July, there's a fireworks demonstration on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. A permit is required for the sale of all fireworks, and these permits are only valid from June 1 to July 15 of each year. "If consumer fireworks are used at home, be sure to check local ordinances for other limitations on the use of fireworks".

The Fourth of July is about a week away.

~Purchase fireworks from an authorized retailer and follow the manufacturer's directions.

Always ignite fireworks on paved surfaces i.e. concrete or asphalt whenever possible; if not, select a dirt area where there is no grass or vegetation growth present.

If you plan to light fireworks, here are a few safety tips to keep you safe.

Aim fireworks away from houses, dry leaves or other flammable materials.

If there is a malfunctioning firework, a bucket of water should be nearby to douse it.

"Fireworks can only be discharged on your property or property of someone who has gave you permission", said Rhoads, adding that children should never handle, play with or light fireworks.

~Point or throw fireworks at other people.

Never ignite fireworks while holding them.

"If you live inside the city limits and you are found with fireworks, they will be confiscated and you could receive a fine", he said.

Do not experiment with homemade fireworks.

Sehlmeyer also warns of the dangers of sparklers.

"Some guy in his basement or garage is mixing flash powder and putting into tubes", he said, "They will invariably blow themselves up at some point". Parents don't realize that young children suffer injuries from sparklers.
