Fireworks Safety

It’s the season of fireworks and the Warrenton Volunteer Fire Company is excited to see beautiful fireworks displays in the upcoming weeks. While fireworks are beautiful, they are also very dangerous and, despite the dangers of fireworks, few people understand the associated risks, including¬†devastating burns, other injuries, fires, and even death.

Every year fireworks cause….

  • 18,500 fires
    • 1,300 structure fires
    • 300 vehicle fires
    • 16,900 outside fires
  • 10,500 injuries
    • 5,355 extremity burns
    • 5,145 injuries to the face and head
