The National Fire Protection Association opposes the consumer use of fireworks, including sparklers and firecrackers. Sparklers burn at 1200 degrees Fahrenheit, hot enough to cause third-degree burns. In 2013, sparklers caused 41% of fireworks injuries. In general, fireworks cause more than 10,000 hospital emergency visits per year. Most injuries occur between late June and late July. Burns and eye injuries are the most common types of fireworks injuries. Children and teens have the highest fireworks injury rate. For more information, visit .
