We hope that you will enjoy the fun and excitement of your Phantom Fireworks, and that you will do so in a safe and careful manner.
Fireworks are an American tradition. They can provide hours of wholesome, family entertainment, but must be used by adults carefully and safely. To insure the safety of both the audience and those lighting the fireworks, we recommend that you obey the following fireworks safety measures during your fireworks display.
Never let children handle, play with or light any fireworks. Fireworks should only be handled by adults.
Please do not consume alcohol when using fireworks. Fireworks must be used by individuals who act in a responsible manner and who are not impaired in any way.
Follow your local and state laws regarding the possession and use of fireworks. Do not use illegal explosives; do not alter any firework device; and do not make your own fireworks. Use common sense at all times in handling fireworks.
Use fireworks on a hard, flat and level surface, not on grass or gravel. If you are using fireworks on grass, lay down a strong piece of plywood as a shooting surface. You must do what you can to insure the stability of the items as you use them.
Use fireworks in a clear, open area, making sure the area overhead is free from obstructions. Keep the audience a safe distance away from the shooting site. Watch out for dry grass, dry brush or any flammable items that could catch fire. Never shoot fireworks in metal or glass containers.
Never put your head or any part of your body over the top of any fireworks product at any time. Never look into a tube to check on the firework item. Never hold a lighted firework in your hand.
Always light fireworks products with an extended butane lighting device, a Phantom pyro-torch, a punk or a flare. Light the fuse only on the tip. Use a flashlight at night so you can see the fuse. Never use a lantern or other flame-producing device near fireworks for illumination. Light the fireworks product and get away quickly.
Light only one firework item at a time.
Don’t persist with malfunctioning items. Never attempt to re-light, alter or fix any “dud” firework item.
Have a fire extinguisher, water supply, hose or bucket of water nearby. During any fireworks shoot there should always be someone assigned as the fireman, whose job it is to be alert and at the ready with a water source for emergencies.
Be cautious of lighting any fireworks during strong wind conditions. Light fireworks with prevailing wind blowing away from the spectators. If there is a wind shift during your shooting, you should stop or rearrange your shooting site to accommodate the wind shift.
Use care in handling fireworks and be careful not to drop them. Do not carry fireworks in your pocket. Never smoke when handling fireworks.
Never use fireworks as weapons. Never aim, point or throw any fireworks at another person or at any property.
Store fireworks in a cool, dry place and dispose of fireworks properly.
Use fireworks outdoors. Never use fireworks indoors.
Never use a wet or damaged shell or launch tube. Insert shell all the way into the bottom of the tube, flat end down. Never force a shell into a tube. Use only one shell at a time. Wait at least 30 seconds between loading shells. Never ignite a shell outside of a launch tube. Never take the shell apart. Never relight a fuse that fails to ignite the device. After lighting the fuse, move a minimum of 20 feet from the launch tube.
Purchase fireworks from reliable, licensed fireworks dealers. Do not use illegal explosives; do not alter any fireworks; do not attempt to make your own fireworks.
Safety glasses are recommended for individuals lighting fireworks and those individuals in close proximity to the fireworks.
Be careful with animals. Noise and lights of fireworks often frighten animals.
Do not transport fireworks on airplanes; it is a violation of federal law.
Phantom Fireworks wants you and your family to have a fun and enjoyable experience with your consumer fireworks, and the only way to insure that safe experience is to follow all of the safety rules. Please use your consumer fireworks safely.
Consumer fireworks are officially referred to as UNO336 1.4G fireworks. They used to be called Class C or common fireworks. The definitions and standards for the consumer fireworks are found in Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
All of our fireworks products meet or exceed the standards established by the U.S. Department of Transportation and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission for UN0336 1.4G (Class C) consumer fireworks. Additionally, Phantom Fireworks tests the products to insure proper product safety, performance and compliance with CPSC standards.
Please remember fireworks safety every time you use fireworks.
