Did you know that sparklers burn at around 2,000°F? That’s hot enough to melt alu­minum, brass, and cop­per. Sparklers are the 2nd high­est cause of emer­gency room vis­its dur­ing July 4th celebrations. 

Small chil­dren should­n’t han­dle sparklers, and adults should use care while they’re lit. 

We want cit­i­zens to have fun, but more impor­tant­ly we want them to be safe.” — Cur­tis Garr, Mar­i­on Fire Chief
