If you play with fireworks, there's a good chance you may get burned. That's why safety experts want you to take precautions when you're celebrating.

There are two types of fireworks in Wisconsin, permit required and non-permit required.

Non-permit required fireworks include items like sparklers, party poppers, caps and toy snakes. But other novelties like Roman Candles and bottles rockets require a permit.

It's always good idea to only light one at a time and make sure all bystanders are out of the way.

It's also important to read the directions and make sure you're in a safe spot before you light them.
