A man holding up a sparkler in each hand. SERVPRO of Vero Beach would like to wish everyone a very happy new year! We hope 2021 brings joy, love, and abundance to you and yours.

Tonight, we will bid farewell to 2020 and celebrate new beginnings for 2021. Traditionally, fireworks are used as part of New Year’s Eve celebrations throughout the world. According to the NFPA, “Ten percent of fireworks fires occur during the period from December 30 through January 3, with the peak on New Year's Day.” This is why it is important to implement safe practices when using fireworks. The Florida Forest Service is providing the following safety tips:

  • Follow all county or city fireworks laws;
  • Light fireworks on a cleared area, free of any vegetation or debris;
  • Remove all debris from roofs or decks where fireworks could land;
  • Keep a water source and a shovel or suppression tool on-hand;
  • Aim fireworks away from people, homes and wooded areas;
  • Never allow children to light or handle fireworks;
  • Never use homemade fireworks;
  • Discard used fireworks in a bucket of water;
  • Store unused fireworks and lighters out of the reach of children;
  • Clean up all debris from fireworks;
  • Immediately call 911 to report any fires.
