Female holding burning sparkler Stay safe this summer season.

Summer brings numerous holidays and special events to celebrate with fireworks in Paw Paw.  The safest way to enjoy and view fireworks is to attend a professional show.  According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), more than 19,500 reported fires are started by fireworks annually, including 1,900 structure fires, 500 vehicle fires, and 17,100 outside and other fires.  The following are a few ideas to get into the spirit without fireworks.

  • Use glow sticks, they flow in the dark and are a safe alternative to sparklers, which get as hot as 1,200°F!
  • Noise makers make a statement without fire.  They can be found at local party supply stores or you can even make your own.
  • Have an outdoor movie night, setting up a screen and projector.
  • Red, white, and blue stilly string - fun for all ages!
  • Make a patriotic craft with the family, such as red, white, and blue tie dye shirts.

If your home or vehicle suffers fire or smoke damage this summer season from fireworks, call SERVPRO of Allegan / Barry County and SERVPRO of Van Buren County for a quote, 269-639-0464
