2. How to store and transport

Fireworks can be transported like any other product. But avoid carrying pyrotechnics in your pocket. Fireworks cannot be turned upside down or put in a bag on their side.

Please store fireworks in spaces where children and pets cannot find them.

Avoid temperature differences

Have you seen a movie with a dog that grabbed a working firework and began to run with it? Fortunately, the dog survived.

Take care of cats!

The cats which are scared of loud sounds like to hide under sofas or in the bathroom. If your cat is like this, prepare a bowl of water and food for it there.

4. How to make fireworks

Set fireworks
in a steady position

Tamp the snow. Surround the fireworks with rocks or snow. Immerse Roman candles in the snow for at least two-thirds!

Do not do fireworks
in a strong wind

The wind can drop the fireworks or blow out the sparks, for example, towards your car.

Make sure that people around are ready to start

If the fuse is broken,
do not set fire to the stump!

no closer than 20 meters
from people, cars and buildings!

Do not insert fireworks where they should

Fire the fuse at the arm’s length!

Never lean over the firework!

If you set firework on fire and it didn’t work, you can only approach it after 20 minutes!

Defective fireworks must be filled with water and given to the seller. The seller will not only refund you or replace the product but will also safely dispose of it.
