Fireworks users should take precautions such as reading and following instructions carefully, staying away from dry vegetation, using fireworks only with adult supervision and never near buildings.
Holiday decorations, including gift wrap and boxes, should be recycled when possible and, if burned, should be placed in an appropriate fireproof container and topped with a metal screen or grill.
The agency recommends disposing of Christmas trees shortly after the holidays, suggesting the trees can be ground into mulch or provide shelter for wildlife.
