Arrange the fireworks on a stable, fireproof surface with a foot or more of space between each device to prevent them from lighting each other. Read any and all safety and warning labels. Keep a bucket of water, garden hose or fire extinguisher Nearby.

2. Is there wind? Position the fireworks so they're downwind of spectators — the wind should blow the sparks, smoke and whatnot away from your friends and family. And, they should stand 25 feet or more back if you're lighting fountains and 100 yards or so away if you're shooting rockets into the air.
