Dangers of Sparklers

If you ask people what the safest firework is, most will likely say sparklers. While sparklers may be less dangerous than some other types of fireworks, they are not completely free of danger--especially when we hand them to children.
A sparkler burns at approximately 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, yet they are often given to small children.
As of 2005, Arizona, Delaware, Georgia, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island banned all fireworks, including sparklers.
