Protect your home from an errant bottle rocket
If yours is a town that allows fireworks,  here are some practical ways you can protect your home from the rockets’ red glare.
Turn on sprinklers to thoroughly soak your landscape.  That includes not just the lawn but also shrubbery near your home.
Make sure gutters are free of dry leaves and other flammable debris.
Consider spraying down your roof and decks.  Oh sure, you risk looking like the Independence Day Grinch standing there with your garden hose, but it might give neighbors a not-so-subtle hint to ... ahem ... shoot their flaming projectiles somewhere else.
Pull vehicles inside so paint can›t be marred by hot debris landing on them.
Cover firewood stacks with a fire-resistant tarp so they won’t provide fuel for a still-smoldering firework that lands there.
Bring upholstered patio furniture inside or cover it with a fire-resistant tarp to prevent scorch marks.
Lock up pets, and make sure they›re microchipped and licensed in case they panic and slip out. The Humane Society offers great tips on making the Fourth of July less traumatic for nervous pets.
Practice fireworks safety with your family.  July 4 is the busiest day of the year for emergency rooms and firefighters. Safety experts recommend you opt for professional fireworks rather than backyard displays (those innocent-looking sparklers literally get hot enough to cook an egg).
Make sure your kids understand fireworks responsibility.  In February, a 15-year-old boy who was playing with fireworks pleaded guilty to starting Oregon›s massive Eagle Creek Fire. It scorched over 48,000 acres in the Columbia Gorge last summer, destroying homes, forcing hundreds of evacuations, and shutting down Interstate 84 between Troutdale and Hood River. Fireworks fun can turn dangerous in seconds, risking injury and property damage to others that not only can lead to heartache, but expose you to the possibility of significant civil liability or even criminal penalties.
