Hooligan Fireworks Safety Tips

The recent fireworks show for the new Cooper River Bridge (aka Arthur Ravenel Jr Bridge) opening and the 4th of July fireworks show reminded me of a Hooligan fireworks incident one houseboating trip.

  • Fireworks should not be used while drunk
  • If you insist on using fireworks while drunk, do not hold them in your hand
  • If you insist on using fireworks while drunk and holding them in your hand, hold them right side up so that it shoots into the air
  • Fireworks should not be set off on top of a gas laden houseboat. Roman candles in particular should be held so they fire into the air, not into the houseboat
