If you’re planning on ringing in the New Year with fireworks, make sure you do it the right way. Dr. Brad Scott, associate professor of surgery at the Baylor College of Medicine (BCM), offers a few tips to ensure a safe New Year’s celebration.

•Always have adult supervision.

•Use eye protection.

•Maintain distance once fireworks are lit and keep a fire extinguisher handy.

•Do not alter or relight fireworks.

•Do not wear loose clothing.

•Do not consume alcohol.

•Only light fireworks in areas where the law permits.

Many injuries that occur are burns on the hand. If the burn is small and looks similar to a sunburn, wash it with cold water and apply a light dressing. If, however, the area bubbles or is a waxy texture, visit the emergency room as soon as possible, Scott said. If an eye injury occurs, wash it out with water and do not put anything on it, and avoid scratching or rubbing the area, Scott recommended.

A majority of fireworks injuries occur in children, so be sure to teach them fireworks safety at an early age.
